So unless you’re a famous musician, you’re probably not going to be playing around with this anytime soon. However, this proof of concept is a great starting point for pedal companies for alternatives to the typical pedal board set up. There’s even a wireless mode that is demoed below in the second video. So any concerns of tripping over the chords if you don’t have a wireless rig are laid to rest. The base station could easily fit on your pedal board as is as well.
While this could free up the need to be anchored to your pedal board, there are concerns of an easy on/off button/switch while playing a set. Because unless you have nothing to play before and after you use it, it won’t be easy to bend over and turn off the shoe.
