(Video) Taking Air-Drumming to a New Level
“Aerodrums” meshes drumming and virtual reality in a brilliant, revolutionary way. The new technology was a hit at NAMM 2016.
Rather than placing a large bulky drum set in a garage or room, this air-drumming instrument uses a computer and motion-capture technology to create a functional-but-invisible drum set. Users holding drumsticks just strike the air and hear the result of each stroke. The company has combined its efforts with an Oculus Rift system so that now drummers can see the drums they are playing in 3D, rather than just on a flat screen.
