The Edible BeetBox Drum Machine From Scott Garner And The Washing Machine Drummer ‘Whirled Beats’

Electronic drum setYes, they still sell electronic drum sets but maybe not for long. We’ve found two alternative percussion instruments that both have a Jubbling side benefit: one is a DIY project that may also encourage a renewed love of veggies and the other will discourage the need for clean laundry.

Maybe the key to getting your kids to eat beets is to let them play the vegetable first. The BeetBox was created by Scott Garner and uses touch to create a sound from each beet. From Scott’s website:

“BeetBox is a simple instrument that allows users to play drum beats by touching actual beets. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi with a capacitive touch sensor and an audio amplifier in a handmade wooden enclosure.”

Creating a beat and working down the food chain is a good thing.

Another beat maker moving away from the full-size drum set and into a less consuming option is the 10-year washing machine drummer in the video below:

Kohler’s Moxie Bluetooth Speaker + Showerhead Is A Short-Shower Killer.

Kohler Moxie Showerhead SpeakerKohler Moxie bluetooth speaker in showerhead.Get the $200 Kohler Moxie bluetooth in-showerhead speaker and say hello to 20 minute showers. Just when we needed a shower that goes cold after 3 minutes comes one that encourages the showerer to hit shuffle and extend it exponentially. Haven’t seen it yet but my guess is Kohler’s recommended playlist for the Moxie includes “Never Stop” (Echo & the Bunnymen) and “Don’t Stop Now” (Crowded House). If Jubbling had a say, the playlist would include “I Know It’s Over” (The Smiths), “Drain You” (Nirvana), “Leave Home” (The Chemical Brothers) and “Seconds” (U2). [Gizmodo]
