Power Laces

From the archives of Back to the Future II comes a reawakened concept of power lacing shoes. I love this idea for its application of technology to the apparel industry. As for practicality, I would see it being most beneficial for those in situations where tying a shoe may be difficult. However, I would also like to see a non-electronic version that allows the laces to operate in much the same way while retaining the slim and simple styling.

Here is a link to a Popular Science article on the product:
