High Tech Meets Low Tech

Nike just released its new self-lacing Adapt BB sneakers with self-lacing technology, integrated lights, and an app to lace them. You control your sneaker lacing with an app and a motor inside the shoes mechanically tightens the laces or loosens them. However, the Android version of the app refuses to pair with the second shoe. The necessary firmware update appears to have caused connectivity problems and prevented the Android version of the app from pairing with one of the shoes. Absolutely true.

This comes on the heals of the basketball shoe blowout on the court during a game a few days ago. Caveat Emptor!
