Imagine using 3d Printers to make these even crazier! 3D Motion Sensing LED shoes that ripple with LED light when you stomp with em!
Talented light shoe inventor Moritz Waldemeyer has created this awesome pair of motion sensing light up shoes for the movie Step Up 3-D which comes out soon. You may remember Moritz as the guy who created the laser jacket for Bono on U2′s 360degree tour or Rihanna’s laser suit from the AMA’s or the Imogen Heap ‘Twitter Dress’ from the Grammy’s or the go-go dancer laser cage iPod dock we featured a few months back. The shoes look pretty sweet even when they’re not lit up:
Now just imagine using multicolor LED lights to create these, and on Luxury Brand name shows like Prada or Gucci, you could really sell them on eBay for a lot of money to some rich fool. Motion sensors inside the shoes create waves of LED lights that move across the sneaker in step with the dancers’ movements. The shoes are modified Creative Recreation trainers covered with flexible LED panels. Probably not worth the effort unless you wanted to see it anyway but you see them for about half a second (at 1:28) in the movie’s trailer.
