  1. I was wondering what issues you have noticed caused by heat generated from the various devices used in wearable tech (not to mention batteries). Is there such a thing as heat-dissipation fabrics or are there good heat-proof fabrics that you would recommend using? Possible other ways to protect the user from heat?

  2. What are the make and model of the shoes used in the Firewalker video? Thanks!

  3. @Nate, they’re Van’s OTW Allomar sneakers– there’s a link to them in the shoe tutorial (tools & supplies page)!
