Nike showed off the BILL robot, which can clean and repair sneakers. The main goal is to extend the life of sneakers and reduce the amount of waste that affects the environment.
BILL creates a 3D model of the shoes to be cleaned and shows all the stages of work. On average, one pair takes 40-45 minutes.
If there is wear on the shoe’s upper part, then you can choose the patches that the robot will use for repairs. Nike employees can optionally replace the laces and insoles.
BILL is an experimental project that operates in a flagship store in London. So far, everything is free, and you can repair or clean Air Force 1, Air Jordan 1, Space Hippie 01, and Nike Dunk.
