The design of Expressive Footwear centered on creating as dense a sensing module as possible. Originally, the motivation came from creating a dance performance in which the dancer is participating directly in the creation of music in the dance performance. In order to accomplish this, a wide variety of sensors and sensing techniques are used to quantify physical parameters of the foot. Once the sensing is accomplished, the resultant data is transformed to music in real time. Recent work has also included using Expressive Footwear in gesture recognition. The development of this system and each of its parts is elaborated upon in this thesis.
