Help make Power Laces a reality Answered

Blake Bevin wowed us with the Power Laces Instructable that brought a bit of Back to the Future Part II to life. Thanks to the massive reception from the project she has decided to take the idea quite a bit further and make it a real product for sci-fi fans and people with motor skill disabilities. 

The new development will require some money and so Blake has turned to Kickstarter to get funds for the project. So if you want to support a fellow maker and help these things become real, kick in a few bucks to help it get going.

Nike has already filed a patent on these. Good luck though. http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-20015323-1.html

They filed late last year, but there have already been a couple of patents issued before them, in 2004 and 2006. Should be interesting.

No, something about preexisting art voided the patent or so I've heard.
