Back to the Future self lacing shoes become reality

The first time I saw Back to the Future II there were a few things that I really wanted from the movie. I wanted that hover board, the DeLorean, and those Nike shoes that laced themselves. The DeLorean and hove board are still not something I have, but with a bit of work and some time we can all have those self-lacing shoes.

Over an Instructables is a project that takes you thought the step-by-step process of creating your own version of McFly's shoes from the future. The finished product is pretty cool.

Despite being cool, the finished product isn't that practical with a big motor on the back for tightening the laces. I wouldn't build these things and then try to go to the airport or anything. Check out the video below to see them in action.
