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
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).
