Satsuki Ohata's Fondue Slipper takes a page from the liquid latex set, but uses higher-temp, harder-wearing PVC to produce extremely custom-fit slippers. Right now, they're a work of art; soon, apparently, they will be an article of commerce that you can purchase in kit form.

I'd like to present you the new footwear which will perfectly match with your foot by "dipping" your own foot. I have named it "Fondue Slipper" because the production process is similar to cheese fondue. It's very easy to make. You just dip your foot and dry it. That's all. *This prototype is using PVC, which hardens at 200~300 degrees Celsius (392~572 degrees Fahrenheit). This time I used my foot mold instead of my foot. I am currently developing a kit which allows Fondue Slipper to make at home. Soon this new kit will be complete and you will be able to make your own Fondue Slipper that fits your foot perfectly. You can wear Fondue Slipper both inside and outside. It can also be used as slipper by folding the heel, or you can wear it without folding the heel if you want to run.

The Atmos R2 may be bigger than the brand’s previously-released vapes, but we argue that in this case it’s definitely a good thing. A bigger heating chamber means more room for packing it full. And the bigger battery means longer, more fulfilling vape sessions. In fact, you can use the Atmos R2 for up to about 25 […]
These days, there is huge demand for ethical hackers. Companies pay these professionals to identify and remedy security holes in their networks before malicious hackers find and exploit them.
