Taking notes and creating art have gone digital. Even creating music has gone digital which, obviously, is not everyone’s cuppa due to the lack tactile touch. If you like to tinker with music and absolutely embrace the lack of tactile sense, well then, we think Specdrums will be right up your alley. Specdrums go by the understanding that some musically-inclined folks love creating music by tapping on everyday objects, including your thighs, furniture and whatnot.
Specdrums are essentially app-connected rings that turn otherwise nonsensical tapping into ear-friendly music and it this by identifying different color to produce different sounds which is, of course, customizable by you using an iOS or Android app. The app affords up to 10 rings to be connected simultaneously and offers you the liberty to choose what color produces what sound or instrument. Now, you see how this is going revolutionize music creation?
Basically, with a host of music instruments and sound effects right at your fingertips, you can even replicate an entire drum setup, including the cymbals, Toms, and snare drum, and yes, the ring can go into your toes too, so you can totally recreate a bass drum too. With the so much freedom for music creation promised, it is not hard to see why Specdrums’ Kickstarter campaign has drew more than 350 backers, raising nearly $30k in just a few days.
If you are down for it, you can pick up a unit as pre-order (the campaign is funded already, btw) for $34 and $29 for each subsequent unit. Or you can pick up a pair for $74. Anyways, you can find out more on the perks on Specdrums’ campaign page. In the mean time, you can whet your appetite with the product pitch video after a few more looks.
