Drop the Beat is a wearable electronic drum set designed by RISD Senior industrial design student Wesley Chau. Inspired by Laurie Anderson’s concert film “Home of the Brave”, Chau aims to elevate the artist’s presence during live performance. The neoprene vest gets velcroed with drum pads embedded with piezo sensors. The result is a one-person band allowing for flexibility and movement. Fantastic! Make sure to watch the video above to see it in action. Check out Chau’s other designs on his site. I especially like this pill box.
