Buying Choices

I only wish I was able to see this for myself as by all accounts its a  really remarkable system. Drummers grinning from ear to ear all over.

Based around a software package, reflective tape and a low cost gaming camera, you can turn fresh air into a fully articulate drum kit (well you need a PC and a drum kit voice). Its an impressive task.

Sadly on PC for now, but a Mac version is coming in a "few months"

Aerodrums is an air-drumming instrument. It runs on your computer and understands your drumming intent by watching you drum through a high speed camera. Aerodrums fits in a backpack with your laptop, feels and sounds as good as a real drum kit, can be silent to others around you, and is affordable. Here is a teaser video illustrating some of Aerodrums' advantages

You will need a Windows computer and a Sony Playstation 3 Eye camera to run Aerodrums. The minimum specifications for the computer are as follows: Intel Core 2 Duo 2Ghz with dedicated graphics card, operating system: Windows Vista, 7 or 8.

Aerodrums is available in the EU on Amazon.co.uk for £100/€120. Purchase Aerodrums in the EU.
Aerodrums is available in the US on Amazon.com for $160. Purchase Aerodrums in the US.
The camera is available on Amazon for between $6 and $30: US, EU.
A Mac version of Aerodrums will be available in a few months.
