The world's most boring-looking drums

We'd never have guessed that the "Ion Digital Drum Station" was a musical instrument.

Next to guitars--real, virtual or something in-between--the most popular musical instruments we've seen on Crave are drums. From fingertip pads to several types of rollaway versions, percussive gadgets appear to be everywhere. But they usually don't look like a cookie sheet.

That's what the "Ion Digital Drum Station" resembles, though ThinkGeek nevertheless claims that it has "eight natural feeling, velocity-sensitive drum pads." They also come with their own sticks, headphones and MP3 inputs to help create custom tunes, or you can just play along to programmed patterns with 233 sounds available for any pad.

That's all fine, yet we can't help but think it strange that the only things we've seen lately that actually look like drums are computer cases.
