Another latest gadget in the house, but this time this latest invention is an instrumental gadget that works by swinging around some sticks and playing these odd little drums.

Inspired by the ever-popular Blue Man Group, these tabletop percussion tubes play drums and other instruments in a full octave range. New motion-sensor technology allows for quiet operation and smooth control. Sound can be heard through internal speakers, headphones, or an external amplifier.

Also percussion tubes are MP3-compatible, meaning you can create music on top of your favorite MP3 tracks. Kids can plug in their iPods and jam along with the music, or play the included Blue Man Group music CD.
