Drum machine shirt lets you pump out beats anywhere, anytime

We’ve seen products that mix the latest tech with fashion and there are a few music gadgets that are incorporated in T-shirts. Not so long ago, I’ve heard news about a playable guitar shirt that has a mini speaker and plays notes when you strum it, and an electronic synthesizer shirt that does the same thing. This seems like a quirky idea, but since there are lots of instruments out there, why not drums?

Now, geeky item shop ThinkGeek has featured a new design that places a drum machine on a shirt, enabling you to play your beats wherever you may be and whenever you want.

This shirt is a fully functional drum machine that has its own mini speaker that clips to your belt. What’s good about it is that it has a looping functionality with what seems to be unlimited tracks, where these loops can last up to 3 minutes. It also features a selection of 9 synthesized sounds including Discotek, Rock Drums, Scratchy, Retro 808, Techno Punk, Classic Jazz, Chiptune, Bass Invaderz and Zapf Dingbeats.

The drum machine shirt is could be a great gift to aspiring rappers, DJs and percussion players or enthusiasts. It is washable, just don’t forget to remove all electronics before dipping it in water.

This, like shirts of its kind, has been designed and distributed exclusively by ThinkGeek. You can visit their website for more information.

    That would be insanely awesome!! It would be good if there was a way to integrate the speaker into the shirt without being a nuisance. I dont think I would like to carry around a speaker all the time, if they find a way to do that… I'll take three!!
