These slippers are designed with two analog inputs each. They sense the pressure being weighted the toes and heel of both feet.
This is not just about drawing, but about tracking motion and the drawing application is a great way of visualizing this.
I'm also currently developing game and rhythm applications for the slippers.

With Flash on almost every computer and Adobe bundling this software with Flash updates, Adobe Media Player should end up on a computer near you.
FLICKR has added support for video. The popular photo-sharing site will now allow paying “pro” users to post videos up to 90 seconds in length and 150 MB in size. With those limitations, the site is not really aiming to compete with the major players in the online television space. Rather, Yahoo’s Flickr is sticking to its roots, encouraging “video snapshots” that play a similar function as photographs.
DISNEY will release all PIXAR films in 3-D starting next year. The move will help differentiate the theater experience from the large HD screens filling living rooms at a rapid pace. Only around 700 theaters currently have the technology required to exhibit films in 3-D. However, Disney’s strong support of the format increases the chance that theater-owners will upgrade to draw people out of their HD-equipped homes.
THE NTIA will relax rules related to converter box coupon redemption. Citizens residing in assisted-living and nursing homes will now be eligible for the coupons. This erases a major complaint against the program and will make it easier for many elderly television viewers (who are more likely to own an analog TV set) to make the switch to digital. The program will also now accept P.O. Boxes as qualified addresses capable of receiving coupons.
KEVIN MARTIN agreed to relax the dual carriage mandate that required all cable systems to carry stations in both analog and digital starting next February. The changes apply to operators with bandwidth of 552 MHz or less. Analog-only systems will be allowed to provide only analog support for must-carry stations. Digital providers can provide must-carry signals in analog if their digital set-top boxes will receive them. Martin is also circulating a proposal that would allow smaller cable operators to down-convert must-carry HDTV signals into standard definition.
YOUTUBE is now being blocked by four Indonesian Internet service providers for hosting a user-submitted video that accuses the Koran of inciting violence.

Some new developments in the DTV converter box arena.
After a slow start, Amazon**** has finally put a program in place to accept the government rebate coupons. This is great news for you. Up till now, if you wanted to use that coupon, you had to visit either Radio Shack, or a big box chain store. Those retailers have very limited models to choose from - some only one! Now however, you can choose any of the converter boxes that are coupon eligible.
