Dancing Shoes

  [vote for,

How about a pair of dancing shoes programmed with all the latest moves and able to emulate every style and dance from classical to modern?

You can choose how the shoes guide you. Either a row of lights along their edge light up to point you in the right direction, or the soles and insides of the shoes are lined with gentle pressure pads that nudge your feet along. The shoes come with adjustable tempo for each dance, as well as the ability to synchronise with any dance music it hears.

Additional dance forms and moves can be added using memory chips. Chips can be purchased at stores, and come programmed with specific themes or types of dances.

Next up: the Puppet Suit ™ for the truly dance-challenged. Just relax and it dances your body for you.

       Nice idea, like Bliss I am dancing challenged,but I can't help thinking my problems only start with my feet, the shoes may be funking out in some style but dragging my twitching carcasse about in a less graceful fashion.

       I am an excellent dancer, it's just that my body isn't.

       "Don't know much about dancin'
That's why I got this song
One of my legs is shorter than the other
'N' both my feet's too long
'Course now right along with 'em
I got no natural rhythm
But I go dancin' every night
Hopin' one day I might get it right..."
