A morphing shoe sounds like nanotech that hasn’t reached us yet, only Nike’s Adapt BB Basketball Shoe might prove otherwise because these kicks, touted as Nike’s most tested shoes in its history, are both digitally connected and possesses the ability to alter fit and shape while on your feet. The Adapt BB houses a special (and apparently, very small) motor and a gear train that senses the tension your activity needs and changes accordingly. Wearers can also make adjustments via the smartphone app or a button in the Flyknit portion of the shoe’s upper. The tech works to provide fitments that change based on activity transitions, and it makes complete sense. Players at rest can loosen the totally laceless shoes and then tighten up during game time. The revolutionary system is known as Nike’s new FitAdapt system and could make its way to other lines of footwear.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
