    Nike have developed a basketball boot that connects to you phone so that it becomes self lacing.. A great example of DDDO - authentic context, challenge and solution for specific end users.

    Check of this link to the article and video: Nike self-lacing shoes put a ton of tech under your feet.

     

    So, you're telling me I don't ever have to bend down to do my laces again lol? That is SO COOL!

    Fantastic segway into DT | HM progress outcomes that all start with, "In authentic contexts...with end-users in mind", thanks so much for sharing Jacky, I could see a load of ideas bounced off from this.

    Definitely Marty McFly's Back to the Future is truly coming to reality, the similarities are uncanny!

    For some really unauthentic ideas to inspire creative design, why not try Chindogu - the art of 'un-useless' Japanese inventions. smiley
