Auto-lacing is soon to move from a notion of the future to concept of the present thanks to sportswear brand PUMA and the creation of the AUTODISC. The device creatively ties shoes with the press of the button bring seamless dressing and tech into the footwear scene.
The AUTODISC is incredibly futuristic in design with a patented Disc system that provides closure to a motor and cable mechanism that ties the shoe. The device is embedded into the ultra comfortable Ignite foam shoes allowing wearers to push a button to have their laces fastened. The shoes can be charged using a USB cable that reboots the motor for continual use.The inner workings of the device are entirely patented by Puma but we can most likely expect to see other popular athletic footwear brands following suit soon.
