Power laces!


Power laces! With an Adafruit shout out at the end (we’re guessing they’re using some OSHW gear from us). On a related note, we’re at an interesting intersection of retro/pop-culture and electronics. From costuming to making “future shoes” – learning electronics allows participation in modern mythology.

  1. Re Nike Patent

    I think you’ll be spending anything you raise in legal fees defending what may or may not be your right to produce this product.

    Remember, it’s not about who’s right, it’s about who’s lawyer can beat up the other lawyer. Nike’s resources will outstrip any ability you’ll have to make this a reality, sorry to say.

    ;-(

    P.S. This is the coolest “prove human” mechanism I’ve even seen!
