If you've lost count of how many times you'd wished you could've drummed along to a song with a set of remote controls in your hands instead of drumsticks, here's an adorably-odd toy called Mr Knocky that does the actual drumming for you -- without electronics, batteries or incompatibilities with your OS of choice.
The plastic remotes use some kind of cable mechanism to pass along the drumming motions of your hands to the $US32 Mr Knocky toy's arms. He includes a set of plastic drums to wail away on, but you can also use an included adaptor to swap in drums or your own percussion instrument of choice -- like an inverted Pringles can. Mr Knocky seems like he could also double as a fairly effective egg cracker, or a more entertaining alternative to a those stuffy uniformed nutcrackers. [Rakuten via Geekologie]
