NIKE music shoe: making of

designboom featured the japanese DJ duo hifana’s musical shoe video earlier this month and many readers were curious how the performance was created. a behind the scenes video was recently released by wieden + kennedy, tokyo showing how the DJs made music from shoes. to make music using the shoes, each pair of runners was equipped with 3 sensors that reacted went bent. these sensors would then send serial codes to a computer, which correspond to a series of sounds. the engineers behind the project developed a software that allowed the digital code to make music. the team also worked with hifana to fine tune the shoe’s even installing accelerometers in the show to modulate the sounds when the shoe is bent.
