Teaching Sneakers: The Ultimate Dancin’ Shoes

Teaching Sneakers: The Ultimate Dancin’ Shoes

Industrial designer Tom Sykes, of the Loughborough Design School at England’s Loughborough University, is the recipient of the 2012 James Dyson Foundation Bursary for his “GroundWave Shadow Trainer”. It’s a sneaker prototype that teaches you how to dance.

GroundWave Shadow Trainer is fitted with accelerometer senses that interact with a specially designed GroundWave app on your smartphone, relaying live feedback from the shoe itself to track your movements and progress.
