These are shoes with LED floor tiles attached to the bottom of them and a pressure switch so that they light up when you put your feet down, just like Michael Jackson's Billie Jean video. They are powered by a battery pack which you put in your pocket. This project was built in a bit of a rush for a party, and there are many things I would have liked to do better with it. They are still awesome though, and plenty bright enough for a club. They look surprisingly cool when not lit up too.
Step 1: You will need
** shoes with a hard sole, not rubber
** white spray paint for shoes
** 24 high brightness LEDs. I used 20000mcd 5mm diffused glow
** reasonably heavy duty microswitch
** polycarbonate sheet approx 30cm square (depends how big your feet are!)
** bits of wood to make the frame
** 3D cell battery holder
Step 2: Paint shoes
Easy first step. Mask off the shoes and spray them white, apart from the toes.
This year I want to try make all my projects from as little newly bought stuff as possible, so I just got any old shoes from the charity shop with a hard sole.
