Motion Sensing Animated LED Sneakers from New [Bad] Movie Step Up 3-D

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.

      please respond…i desperatley want a pair of these, dancing is my life!! Ive never wanted something so badly it pains me is there any way u can make one more pair?? it would mean the world to me!! 🙂


      • hahahhahaha i am so happy to see so much DESIRE manifest on the internet

        well you are in luck i AM going to make more, and they will be these shoes, which in a post i commented shows the price i beleive its 80$ or $60 for those shoes?

        I have to buy some motion sensors, microprocessors with programable patterns (usb, very siple, u couldl even put in ur own patersn) and the LEDS

        I COULD make these with MULTI COLOR LEDS or different solid colors, but here is the deal

        Your going to be buying the right size shoe online which is the same from the movie, and sending it to my business, but only when I have copmpleted the LED assembly with battery and everything READY to be attached to shoe!

        If you guys live in Southern California you could even meet with me and bring the shoes to me and id show you how i attach the aseembly which I can make look JUST like the movie.

        slorry for my keybaord its is broken and the typos I cannot afford, wow, theres a lot sorry hah

        anyway put in formal requests to

        and remember, heres the deal

        Im not going to charge you $300 for some LED shoes LOL

        But i AM going to be earning a cool $75 off each shoe I make, so lets say the battery microcontroler and leds which are CHEAP, all might cost $20-$40, probbly 20, then, your looking at 80+75+20 aproximatly these will be in the $175-$200 range

        You will be so lucky to get this price, i am GIVING you my labor away for FREE

        I will be getting 75$ proft no matter what you pay for all shiipping etc etc, i am not doing it without at least making 75$ and thats like 2$ an hour so you should all either be grateful or just go away 😀

        But you all seem really nice, cool, and i am excited to begin building the LED and controler and motion sensor Pad that ges attached to these shows. IN FACT if u wanna Not send e the shoes, i could send you the Thing to ATATCH to the shoes but you will have to do some cutting, gluingm stapiling, things u may not want to do, but i could make it easy for you.

    i am a hip hop dancer and i would love to have these shoes to dance in and make the crowd go wild it would be awesomee!!


  12. email me at zackza @ gmail im actualy building a new model that had bluetooth and youll be able to send new patters for the LEDs to the shoes from your iphone, not through an app though, if u can find someone to make us a simple iphon/android app that just sends led chip pattterns
    otherwise it wont be so bad to actualy plug your shoe into a usb port and then have it open up as a folder on your desktop, for new pattersn etc ill release them here and you can trafer them directly to the shoe for now, oh and did i saythe shoes will haveno just blue but red and green leds along with optional high powered lasers that allow you to create radial laser circles in the air during a flip or twwist etc, (with proper supervision) AND these shoes will have bilt in accceleramotors.
    call me at 619 5 zero one three s1x s3ven Ate And I will be glad to tell you how by shipping your choice of shoe inyour custom size i can use your shoe as a prototype where id only charge you for the cost of the leds and chips which would only be around $100 I will do the labor free for this limited time offer, and youll get some really amazing features, AND not limited to the shoes from the movie i can trick out any of your shoes well not sandles
