Build Your Own Self-Lacing Shoes With Lego [Video]

Admittedly, it’s not quite as elegant as Nike’s official version. However, this crude Lego solution will save you roughly $700. See how it works in the video below.

From the project page:

This was a quick experiment into combining LEGO with other materials. To build on the shoe, I used a dremel and a hot glue gun to fix a few LEGO connection points. From there, it was straightforward to experiment with different designs and test their functionality. It works reasonably well, but I’m sure it can be done much better with a bit of effort.
