ThinkGeek is a company that has been featured a lot on CrunchWear over the years, and with good reason. They continue to release interesting and stylish wearable technology. One product that caught my eye is the Electronic Drum Machine shirt, by ThinkGeek.
ThinkGeeks Electronic Drum Machine shirt has 9 built in drum kits – Rock Drums, Retro 808, Discotek, Techno Punk, Classic Jazz, Bass Invaderz, Chiptune, Zapf Dingbeats and Scratchy. One thing is for certain, the are sure to be some interesting drum sounds on this shirt! The drums on the shirt can be played, and you can loop your own beats up to 3 minutes long. Once you’ve looped your beats, you can even change the sounds being used for your loops.
The shirt comes with a speaker that you can attach to your belt, allowing you to share you sweet beats with your friends on the fly, or if you happen to be creating your beats in a library there is a built in audio jack which allows you to use headphones.
The shirt is washable, but you have to make sure to remove the drum pads and electronics first. It also requires 4 AA batteries to work.
Overall, the Electronics Drum Machine shirt by ThinkGeek is crammed full of features to allow you to create great beats on the fly. It’s not the first musical shirt out there, but it certainly is one of the most interesting. Check out the video below to see a demonstration of the shirt!
