Senstroke can make you a 21st century drummer — with no drums

Drummers hear all the jokes. What do you call a drummer with half a brain? Gifted. How is a drum solo like a sneeze? You know it's coming, but there's nothing you can do about it. What do you call a drummer that breaks up with his girlfriend? Homeless.

Drummers hear the jokes — and laugh. Because they know they're the thumping heartbeat of any band. They're the ones with loads of equipment. And they're the ones making all that noise while practicing. Yet try to play almost any song without drums and the lack of propulsion and power is instantly palpable.

Drummers are essential. Now, users can join their ranks — and they don't even need to buy a massive drum kit or rattle their walls to do it. Created by drummers, Senstroke by Redison is the first sensor device that can teach anyone to play the drums and even reproduce the drummer experience, all without any physical drum set.

Just attach the patented Senstroke sensors to a pair of drumsticks and your feet, connect via Bluetooth, and instantly you can turn any surface into a virtual drumhead. Using the impact of the drumsticks and your feet positioning, the sensors reproduce the exact sounds your chosen drum element would make through the Senstroke app. 

Your legs, some cushions, a coffee table, they all become fair game as a drum surface while you refine your skills. And when you attach a pair of headphones, no one else even has to know you're playing…well, except for all the arm flailing and sweat spatter, right?

In the app, you can record your playing, share it as a digital file, and improve your drumming with interactive lessons.

With this true-to-life drum simulator, users can move from beginner to expert drummer, all without any of the cost or hassle of real drums. Or just use it as the perfect tune-up when you can't get behind a real kit.

This bundle, which includes the app, two sensors, two drumsticks, and a rubber pad for reducing the noise of stick hits, is only $189.99 right now.
