Power Laces inspired by ‘Back to The Future II’, this project by Blake Bevi, who hooked a micro-controller on to the back of a pair of sneakers.
“Operation is quite simple- step into the shoe and a force sensor reads the pressure of your foot and activates two servo motors, which apply tension to the laces, tightening the shoe. A touch switch reverses the servos.
this project is less ‘Practical’ than ‘Proof of Concept’, but hopefully it’ll tide you over until Nike comes out with something more polished. ” Bevin writes.
