Aerodrums is a new product shown at NAMM 2014 that takes the term "Air Drums" to a whole new level.
"Aerodrums is an air-drumming instrument. It runs on your computer and understands your drumming intent by watching you drum through a high speed camera. Aerodrums fits in a backpack with your laptop, feels and sounds as good as a real drum kit, can be silent to others around you, and is affordable."
The kit costs $160, it's PC only at the moment (Mac version in a few months) and requires a Playstation 3 Eye Camera (approx. $18 on Amazon).
Aerodrums Kit contents:
- Two drum sticks
- Two foam triangles with elastic loops: the “foot markers”
- Two elastic bands with Velcro® patches: the “shin markers”
- A donut shaped lamp with a lens and a USB plug: the “lamp”
- A pair of paper sunglasses
- A plastic piece shaped to hold the drum sticks parallel: the “holder”
- The installation DVD, with a product key printed on the sleeve
