10 interesting projects using Arduino boards

Who wouldn't want to live in a world with instant pizza, hover-boards or auto-lacing shoes? Those were just a few examples of the technology we were supposed to have this year according to the movie Back to the Future Part II. In all actuality, hover-boards from Lexus, Hendo and HUVr are set to hit the market sometime soon and auto-lacing shoes from inventor Blake Bevin have become a reality (no instant pizza though). Blake's Power Laces shoes may not look identical to the Nike's Michael J. Fox wore but they function much in the same fashion. Force sensors in the bottom of the shoes activate the laces when pressure is applied. An Arduino grabs the sensors data and instructs a servomotor to winds the laces tight around your foot. While it may not be the most compact device, Blake is still revising her design with a newer model that will hopefully be unveiled this year.
