Remember in Back to the Future 2 when Marty gets given some clothes by Doc to look like his future son? Of course you do, with the funny looking hat, auto-resizing jacket and those Nike power laces? The future is has finally become today.
Ok, well maybe not in the fashion we expected. Nike has not exactly put anything of the sort in to production. But while celebrating the Back to the Future 25th anniversary, one fan set to work on recreating the famous ‘Hyperdunk’ shoes. “Power laces! Alright!”
Yesterday we covered a story on another BTTF technology that has also become a reality. The flying car. It will cost under $200,000 and will be avaliable in the year 2011. Back to the Future 2 was not too far off then!
A user called blakebevin, the re-creator of the Hyperdunks has posted the instructions online how you can mimic the power laces, using a motor, Arduino microcontroller, a pair of hightop sneakers, and other bits and bobs.
Once you are done with these instructions, you should have your very own pair of working Hyperdunks. Just imagine showing those to your friends! Check out the video below to see the finished product.
What do you think of the Hyperdunk recreation?
