E-Traces technology makes ballet even more impressive
Technology in motion.
Designer Lesia Trubat has created a unique technology for dancers to track their movements on the dance floor. Trubat studied ballerinas and observed how they moved and realized that if she paired a LilyPad Arduino board with a ballerina’s pointe shoes she could record the pressure and movement of their feet. The technology, “E-traces,” gives dancers the ability to review their choreography by video or images that have the capability to be printed as a hardcopy.
Pointe shoes are specifically designed and fitted with the technology which allows dancers to retrace their steps.
Dancers view their movements on a different app.
The lines represent motion and pressure.
