Impressive: Using Sneakers To Control Music

This is by far one of the most impressive DIY projects I’ve ever seen. Seems some guy hacked his Saucony sneakers with photoresistors to react to light. Each show has a 1/4″ jack to plug in an amp cable with and when you move your foot, a sound file is manipulated. Those NYU students are just so darn crafty.

The entire process is detailed well on his personal NYU page, so be sure to give that a read if you can warrant the time for it. Oh yeah, take a guess at what interface he used for all of this. Did you pick Arduino? You would be correct, sir.
