It’s no surprise that the first recipients of this clever stuff are athletes. Globe has incorporated d3ois in the heels of skateboarding shoes so rad dudes can make Big Air and land in safety. The U.S. and Canadian Olympic ski teams now happily wear d3o-enhanced Spyder racing suits. d3o also designed a beanie and a Contour glove made by Sells.
The next group that should be looking into using d3ois are the military, firefighters, the police. I can see this being used inside the upholstery used in cars. And maybe even in homes – if you have toddlers you have a terror of corners on furnature, don’t you?
d3ois may not light up, but athletes report it works quite well for them and I see it will have a successful future.
If you want to see what the DUNE shields that we made look like, that’s the page. Plus, the series gets repeated on the SciFi channel.
