Microsoft develops on Footpad UI

Microsoft has developed a color-coded "dance pad" with buttons you can tap with your feet.
It may never make it to store shelves, but that's no concern to Microsoft, which spends billions of dollars a year researching far-out technologies without worrying about whether the gizmos will ever make it to store shelves.

Every year, the software giant holds an internal trade show where hundreds of researchers show off their work.

On Tuesday, Microsoft Research offered a sneak peek at its "Step User Interface" technology, one of more than 150 concepts that will be featured at its two-day TechFest beginning Wednesday.
