Shoes originally inspired by a cult sci-fi movie have been modified with new improvements.

Remember the Back To The Future-inspired shoes called “Power Laces” that we covered a few months ago? Well, the latest update is that its creator Blake Bevin has developed the second prototype for these automatic lacing shoes. The upgraded version does away with the bulky motor and has the lacing system built into the shoe's sole.

Blake is looking for additional funds to develop a commercial version of her Power Laces shoes.

Watch a demonstration below:
