adidas _1 is a Running shoe providing intelligent cushioning by automatically and continuously adjusting itself. It does so by sensing the cushioning level, using a sensor and a magnet. It then understands whether the cushioning level is too soft or too firm via a small computer. It adapts with a motordriven cable system to provide the correct cushioning throughout the run.
