Do you like to make beats? Do you have restless hands? Do you like to annoy the crap out of your friends? Well four college students in Antwerp, Germany (Arnoud den Besten, Kristo de Pooter, Sam Vesters, and Thomas Leterme) came up with the perfect diversion for the antsy musician in all of us.
Introducing the Beat on the Block Drum Glove System, a cleverly crafted, easily portable drum glove system that enables its user to simulate the sounds of a full drum kit by tapping their fingers onto any flat surface. The gloves come packaged conveniently in a backpack equipped with speakers and built-in looping effects similar to more traditional drum machines. The system also allows multiple users to work together in tandem in case one amateur finger drummer wasn't enough. This, dare I say, is the perfect gift for a friend who hates their roommate!
The big question is can you plug your mp3 player into the backpack and play REAL music from the speakers? That might make this product 100x more enticing. What do you think?
