Drum jeans let you take your karaoke session anywhere

Most of us have had some experience in the high school lunch room tapping out beats as our friends engage in a little impromptu karaoke, but imagine how the a capella lameness might melt away if your knee slaps were powered by an actual electronic drum kit.

That's exactly what 17-year-old UK student Aseem Mishra accomplished with his latest invention, originally introduced as an entry in the country's Young Engineer of Great Britain Competition. Mishra's "drum jeans" feature everything from hi-hat, bass, cymbal and kick, delivering a surprisingly robust drum performance all powered by a nearby bag of gear connected to the jeans. You can see the drum jeans in action here.
