    This is a picture of the Super Mario themed drum kit that Josh Fry just finished building. It was his first drum kit build. For reference, I have built zero drum kits, but a shit-ton of model airplanes. Anybody recognize the sprite he used for the ground? I know it's not fr... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of Siberian percussionists playing music on frozen ice sheets in Lake Baikal in -20°C (-4°F) temperatures. I didn't even know sound could travel attemperatures that cold. "You're an idiot." It's true, I'm not that smart. But I was smart enough to ... / Continue →

    I'm pretty sure I knew cymbals actually had some motion to them when struck, but nothing like this. This is like...the motion of the ocean. My stomach wouldn't even move that much if you punched me as hard as you could. Yes, yes it would. No lie: I got into a fight in eight... / Continue →

    Ed (not Norton) and Ursula (not from The Little Mermaid) recently got married and decided to tie the knot with a Rock Band themed wedding cake. As you can see, it's a not very 3D drum set. Wow -- I hope you stoned the baker, because I would have demanded that thing stand up. ... / Continue →

    While not as cute as the lovable little robot drummer, The Trons actually play with four part harmony...and feeling. The best thing about robotic bands is there's no chance of them turning into a bunch of strung out heroin addicts and nodding off on stage. Now I'm not saying... / Continue →

    We've already seen all sorts of ridiculous computer desks here at Geekologie, and here comes another -- the V1 (V for Vision, not Vagina). It looks like the bastard child of a three-way between a car seat, computer desk, and drum set. The V1 computer desk is dynamically d... / Continue →

    Sure I could make beats with a drum synthesizer on the computer, but honestly, that's a little too digital for my tastes. Now I know what you're thinking: short of actually playing the drums, how can I get around this obstacle? Simple -- you make little robotic drums out of c... / Continue →

    The Musical Rumba Table, from MusicalFurnishings.com, makes noise when you bang around on it. That's because it's actually a table with different percussion instruments attached to the underside of the individual tiles. You can even customize your piece by choosing from the 1... / Continue →
