This week Nike announced a new line of self lacing shoes. Finally fulling the promise of Back to the Future 2. The shoes are called HyperAdapt 1.0, and use a series of sensors in the heel and sole of the shoe to tell how you walk and will adjust the tightness of the laces to match your walking style. Nike says the shoes operate on a battery that will last for two weeks on a single charge. No price or release date was announced.
