Puma Bringing Back The Classic 1986 RS-Computer Shoe
Some of you may be old enough to remember the 1986 RS-Computer running shoe from Puma. It was way ahead of its time as the shoe had a computer chip inside the heel to record data like calories, distance, and time.

Electrowetting process helps you generate power while you walk
I still remember when I first walked into the cinema prior to the turn of the new millennium to watch ‘The Matrix’, and boy, was I truly blown by Neo’s exploits as the potential One.
