FINAL PROJECT “TAPPING SOUNDs”

IMG_2249

“Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. Two major variations on tap dance exist: rhythm (jazz) tap and Broadway tap. Broadway tap focuses on dance; it is widely performed in musical theater. Rhythm tap focuses on musicality, and practitioners consider themselves to be a part of the Jazz tradition”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tap_dance

Tap Dance is every where you go, I design this shoes as one kind of music which is using tap sound. This shoes create another tone of sound. The concept is still making sound by tapping but more softly and users are tapping on the heel and toe just a little bit. This prototype is not necessary create the tap sound but can be any kind of sound and can add more pitches sound.

In the future, this shoes will be able to record the sound while people are tapping. Also the sound can hear just the player by using head phone. People can crate they own rhythm everywhere. This music device can put on any shoes.

 

CODE :

#include “pitches.h”

int analogpin[6]={A0,A1,A2,A3};

int buzpin=8;

int threshold=70;

void setup()

{

Serial.begin(9600);

}

void loop()

{

if(analogRead(analogpin[0])>threshold)

{

Serial.println(“A0”);

tone(8, NOTE_B4,1000/4);

}

if (analogRead(analogpin[1])>threshold)

{

Serial.println(“A1”);

tone(8, NOTE_A6,1000/4);

}

if (analogRead(analogpin[2])>threshold)

{

Serial.println(“A2”);

tone(8, NOTE_F4 ,1000/6);

}

if (analogRead(analogpin[3])>threshold)

{

Serial.println(“A3”);

tone(8, NOTE_E6,1000/6);

}

if (analogRead(analogpin[4])>threshold)

{

if (analogRead(analogpin[5])>threshold)

{

}
