Could a computer make a suit of armour dance?

Paul Anderson  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Hi Chris and team,

A year or two ago I was daydreaming of a light 'suit of armour' which folk could put on and it would help uncoordinated fools such as myself to do taiji or ballroom dancing, either by giving me an electrical 'prod' in the left leg or the right leg, or whatever.

I had toyed with the idea of having the 'suit of armour' hooked up wirelessly to a computer which was thinking in 3D. The computer would have the x, y and z coordinates for the 24 step taiji and it would direct the suit of armour to follow the instructions.

Any comments?
