With both prom and wedding season upon us, what better time to learn how to dance? Rather than simply rely on a class instructor or watch a bunch of YouTube videos, what if there was a wearable system that could help you with your choreography? This is exactly what designer Pascal Ziegler has created using a pair of woolen embedded socks.

Combined with an Android app, these interactive socks use pressure sensors, vibration motors, and Arduino Nanos to monitor and guide your feet to the specific movements for each respective dance.

If (or more like when) you make a mistake while performing the Disco Fox, Waltz, or Charleston, negative feedback is provided through five buzzing motors.

Ready to bust a move? Make yourself a pair of robotic socks.
