Wearable electronics is an emerging new field.  I'm pretty sure that soon we'll see costumes enhanced with colorful electronically pulsated led lights flashing on and off - for better or for worse.

It's one thing to have artistic designs generated by movement....But could these shoes really help dancers evaluate and improve their ballet technique? For that matter, will we see ballet training apps for the upcoming Apple watch, and if so, how useful would they really be?

Now that you mention it … maybe.  Perhaps force sensors of some kind could be incorporated under the ball and heel of the shoe to see if a dancer is using her feet properly.  It's an interesting thought.
