With today's technology you'd think they'd make it wireless, cause that looks like the perfect way to trip yourself up. I assume you can't wear them in the rain either.

How long does a pair of Converse last you? 2 years? Worth putting that in?

I'd image you'd only wear them onstage; how fucking quick would water get into the innards with those exposed jack sockets?

Pony idea, it's like a Nathan Barley invention

The whole 'bendy resistor' thing is hella weird, would've thought some closer to the EHX Crying Tone would make more sense here (so you don't need to fuck up your tendons during your porno-funk set), but I guess this is cheaper.

Poor Arduino.. used in so many shit projects..

looks uncomfortable to use, I'm suprised the gubbins behind it weren't more like those new EHX wahs where they measure the movement. [edit: beaten to the point by psychic doog]

Also I'm sure a few years ago someone posted a video where a guy had duct taped two wah pedals to his feet, playing guitar while stomping around like godzilla. I wonder if that was the inspiration for these!

Nah http://www.adverblog.com/2013/06/24/converse-hack-a-chuck/

You can even see them put the Arduino in a shoe, all of these things are 100% possible, not much of a impossibility, just a shit idea
