HowTo: Auto-Lace Your Kicks

Auto-Lace Your Kicks

Kitschy kicks your thing? Try these self-lacing sneakers on for size. Inspired by the iconic Nike Air 2015s worn by Michael J. Fox's character in Back to the Future Part II, these shoes utilize an Arduino-powered force sensor and somewhat bulky pair of rear-mounted servo motors to pull themselves tight when offered a human foot. A switch reverses the process.

Feeling ambitious? Head over to Instructables for complete instructions on how to build your own pair.
