Tune Taps are a tool for tap dancers to create any sound imaginable.
Mike and I are both dancers, and we found that we had the same dream: to make music with our feet.

We created TuneTaps, a system that senses our feet in the place of normal tap shoes but communicates with the computer to play the sound.
Our first working prototype, more video to come:
