It seems we are used to charging smartphonesTablets, scales, and even toothbrushes are a price for having smart features for a device. But what if you have to keep track of charging and sneakers? One such model is Adapt BB, Nike showed. Sneakers are not only able to tie shoelaces themselves, but also “friendly” with an app for a smartphone.

More precise tuning is available using the Nike Adapt application. The built-in motor itself determines the desired level of fit and adjusts to the leg of its owner.

In 2016, Nike has already shown such sneakers -these were HyperAdapt 1.0. Buy them was possible only by invitation and as much for 720 dollars. Few are ready to give such money for shoes. Adapt BB is two times cheaper and will appear in the company's stores this year. It is interesting that there are no visible laces here, and the density of planting changes imperceptibly. Light indicators on the sole and heel indicate when the battery needs to be recharged.

The battery capacity in sneakers is 505mAh, which is enough from 10 to 20 days of use, according to the manufacturer. Included with the shoes is a wireless charging standard Qi, which allows you to fully charge the sneakers in 3 hours. Given that this is not a shoe for every day, you can put a pair on the gym.

Nike has promised to release such long sneakersyears In 2011, a pair of non-functional sneakers were sold at auction, looking exactly like in the movie “Back to the Future II”. At the end of October 2015, the company presented a working prototype of self-worn running shoes to Fox himself.
