Andrew made a pair of shoes that control Michael Jackson songs when plugged in (using Force-sensitive resistors)…

“The initial idea involved a pair of old sneakers, repurposed, to dynamically manipulate a sound file. Basically I wanted to build shoes that would BOOM! when you walked. The louder you stomp the louder the BOOM! In a sense — “giant” shoes.

The two FSR’s I was working with broke at the eleventh hour, and the trouble-shooting that insued, reinvented the project for me. “ [via] – Link.
