• Welcome to Team PAJ’s MIDI Tap Shoe page! Here you find a thorough overview of how we developed our system, what it does, how to use it, and how to continue the work if you so choose. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if any questions or concerns arise!
  • Our MIDI Tap Shoe system will be fully customizable, no matter what size shoes the user wears.  To keep costs low, the user will be able to easily install this system (with no damage to the shoe) into a pair of shoes that he or she already owns and is comfortable with.  Different from other attempts at this concept, our system is totally wireless, offering the user total freedom to perform as expressively as possible.
  • This project will feature rock-hard soldering, tear-proof fabric pouches, and adjustable elastic straps to deliver large doses of dancer comfort.
  • The final prototype will offer near-instant response time between foot tap and audio response, and offer a dazzling array of video manipulation options as well.
  • This final prototype will be a total realization of our dream of a pair of durable, responsive, reliable electronic dance shoes that can be used in a multitude of environments.
  • Team PAJ is: Joe Vargas, Patrick Afrifah, and Aaron Wirtz
