BeatSneaks – MIDI sneakers

I’m a huge fan of out-of-the-ordinary MIDI devices of all kinds.  For some reason, the concept of crossing sneakers with a drum machine had never crossed my mind, but now it’s all I can think about, thanks to a cool how-to article and video from Tom Hobson at Hobgob Eclectronics, about their prototype “BeatSneak” project.  There are sensors in the toe and heel of each shoe, giving you a total of four “pads” to work with.

    Nice find man.

    Reminds me of these midi cubes these guys made that basically interacted with each other when they got close to another – they also changed colors, very cool.
