These Shoes Can Walk Themselves

Walking! Some people like it so much they do it faster. Other people try to avoid it as much as they can. These motorized shoes are for the walking haters, because the shoes can walk on their own.

The self-walking shoes were made by an Instructables intern who drew inspiration from tiny wind-up shoes. He attached a wooden pivot arm to both shoes and powered it with a servo motor to get it moving. It's an interesting concept that makes you wonder if someone can combine these auto walking shoes with the auto lacing ones, so we can finally reach the dream of having fully automatic shoes.
