Well, the inventor has made these foot-tapping Musical MIDI shoes, literally. You don’t believe me? Read on. The source link will show you how to make these musical shoes.
Here’s what you are going to need, for this DIY:
· 4 Force Sensitive Resistors.
· A pair of shoes. The inventor urges you to use something which comes with a solid covering and heels. You can read, rest of the do’s
and dont’s in the link, given below.
· 4 to 6 10 K Ohm Resistors
· Arduino, of course. This will help you communicate between the FSRs and your computer.
· A project box
· Mono/Stereo Jacks and cables.
· 1 USB cable
· A roll of electrical tape
· (And foot tapping skills, like the inventor says. Funny!)
For the connections, you can refer to the schematic diagrams, given in the link below. You can experiment with LEDs and make your box cooler. Once that is done, you can start dissecting your shoe heel, to mount in the jack. Read online, how to go about it. You don’t want to be left behind with a butchered shoe!
You can get the information online on how to program your Arduino in accordance to drum triggers. If you don’t know where to look, check out the source link. You can get the code there too. Win-win!
