Mousepads that make music aren’t exactly new, but if you have a great sense of rhythm and want to put those drumming fingers to good use during your more idle moments at the office, the Finger Drum Mousepad is right up your alley.
This mousepad has an integrated electronic drumpad that allows you to play eight different percussion sounds, including bass, snare, two rack toms, a floor tom, hi-hat, crash, and ride cymbals using only your fingers. The MP3 player input enables you to play drum solos over any song from your digital music library. A demonstration mode accompanies six preset patterns, and you can record up to 30 of your own rhythms. Separate volume and tempo controls adjust sound levels, and the headphone jack ensures discreet finger drum practice. Includes four AAA batteries.
Each purchase will cost you $39.95, and who knows? You might just come up with that next great solo that could see you exchange the dreary office life for that of a rock star’s.
