Virtual drums roll into your pocket

Now you can take bust out your solo anywhere


Technology has allowed more amateur guitarists to take their instruments on the road, from guitars to keyboards. Yet the possibility of an easily mobile set of drums has been confined largely to the likes of the "Finger Drum Mousepad."

But percussion lovers can take heart now that the "Portable Electric Drum Set" is here. Similar to roll-up pianos that have been on the market for awhile, this virtual instrument is built into a 20-inch rubber mat that can be rolled away anytime, anywhere. Tokyomango says the eight-drum set even has "preset tunes and rhythms to jam to."

Granted, this rather nerdly alternative doesn't quite have the visual effect of a real-life drum solo. It would, however, be a nice complement to the Spotswood kick-drum PC.
