Lace Tightening LEGO Machine

lego shoelace tightener

Industrial designer Vimal Patel’s LEGO machine carries out a very special task of tightening your shoelace.  The 1989’s blockbuster Back To The Future II also featured self-tying shoes that would become an integral part of daily routine.

 Patel’s LEGO machine uses a motor, receiver, battery box and motor to tie laces together. The DIY lace tightening machine was created just for fun.
