This well known fact has been put into practicality by a bunch of students from Artesis University College of Antwerp, that are out there to Jazz up the world with their new Beat On The Block.
This cool new-gen musical instrument enables a musician to convert any surface into a musical platform of creativity and add the thump factor to it. Using all the modern day tech available in touch sensing and acoustics, this beatbox is able to replicate the sound of a full drum kit anytime and anywhere.
All you need to do is to put on the gloves and find yourselves a surface to tap your fingers on, once you are doing your job perfectly the specifically designed backpack begins to do it’s tasks, it will automatically recreate the beats corresponding to the user’s finger tapping.
This radical new instrument also allows multiple users to work in tandem, thus surpassing the capabilities of the previously existing drum machines and also enhancing the user experience.
