These Power Laces Were Inspired by 'Back to the Future II'

It's been a while since I've re-watched the cult classic 'Back to the Future,' but I still remember the inspiration for these Power Laces. Looking just as retro as the imagined "futuristic" technology did in the late 80s, despite the cumbersome motor on the back, this shoe tightening technique is pretty impressive.

Although Instuctables BlakeBevin could only afford to revamp one Nike shoe with Power Laces, I'm sure there will be more than one 'Back to the Future' fan who will create a complete pair. Simply place your foot into the shoe and sensors will tighten the laces according to your foot size.
