Shoe Data :)

Hi There, I am working on a project to be performed in New York in April. I am researching various sensors and was wondering what you all thought would be the best type for the project. The Project: The position / pressure of a dancers shoe on the ground will control the pitch (sweeping effect) of a sine tone. The tone will be generated on a laptop and interfaced using an Arduino MicroController. The Sensor: Thus far, and I don't have much time, I'm going with flex sensor/voltage divider circuit. Any other suggestions? The tone change is based not on distance from sole to ground, but point/pressure of sole while on ground.

Thanks guys, -Max
