Blue Man Group Percussion Tubes


From the Popular Science magazine website:

    Totally Tubular

    With this ingenious musical "toy," you’re but a shaved head and tub of paint from joining the Blue Man Group.

    This lower-fi version of the group’s legendary PVC pipe organ/percussion rig can produce five different instrument sounds and is controlled via proximity sensors using your hands or the included drum sticks — and a built-in MP3 player dock lets you play along with your tunes.

    Watch the demo.


Expect a near-term explosion of YouTube music videos featuring this nifty instrument.
