ALARM STRING / shoelace

ALARM STRING
ALARM STRING

Any one of us have had the unpleasant experience of getting our shoe laces stepped on by others, or tripping over because it was undone.
The reason lies in the fact that shoe laces usually lie beyond one's field of vision.
This everyday phenomenon triggered the idea for my design, which is made by inserting air into the shoelace so that when someone steps on it, the pressure generates a sound as the air is released.
The target group for this product is those who wear footwear with shoelaces, especially the blind or young children.
