This kid is genius! Aseem Mishra, a 17-year-old Brit, designed a pair of jeans that could be used as a drum kit. So when he wears his jeans and starts drumming his lap, well, it sounds like the drums.
Spurred by the annoyance of having to lug drums around, Mishra wove eight pressure-sensitive sensors into the denim to get his full kit. The jeans have to be plugged into a speaker set, which is conveniently located in the kid’s backpack. He’s basically a one man band. Be sure to watch the video in action, it’s a fantastic idea (we all faux drummed before!) and the kid looks like he’s having the time of his life. Watch it at BBC. [BBC]
