Self-Lacing Nike Sneakers | Video


There is no need to wait till 2015 for self-lacing sneakers, because with a little bit of geeky creativity and an Arudino Microcontroller, Blake Bevin have recreated a pair of self-lacing Nike sneakers as inspired by Back To The Future II. Sure the product still looks rough around the edges (And by rough, we mean there is a huge exposed slab of circuit board tagged to the back of the kicks.) but there is no doubt that when you apply pressure with your foot, the laces tighten. The process can be reversed as simply as flicking the touch switch. Check out the sneakers, and hopefully Nike will be able to refine the work and perhaps come up with something similar so no one has to learn how to loop and do bunny ears anymore. via: Instructables
