Digital shoe ties

Tightens or releases without the need to bend down
  [vote for,

A small mechanism for tightening or releasing the shoe controlled by some external event: e.g.
* Tapping a certain tune,
* pressing a button on the ankle with the other foot, ,
* voice activated (with recognition of owner, so no pranks) * remote controlled * SMS / mobile call controlled

Forget about bending over to open your shoes.

In emergency - If it fails, you can always open the laces or some safety gadget and get your shoes off.

Also a safety catch, for disabling it during critical moments (perhaps while driving etc).
