The art of dance is given a different spin thanks to these LED shoes. Although there have been similar DIY versions in the past, Japanese startup No New Folk Studio has created an official version that is made with dancers in mind. Specifically, break dancers. With these LED shoes on, they streak the night sky to make stunning light paintings.

Dubbed Orphe, the LED shoes are smart as well. They're fitted with motion sensors in order to be controlled and customized by the user via an accompanying app.
Design Taxi writes, "The creators behind these Orphe shoes hope that users will be inspired to create and share their unique light patterns and paintings with others online.È
