Oddball Drum Machine

Oddball is a drum machine you can bounce off walls to make beats! Currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, Oddball is a drum machine encased in a bouncy ball you can throw at any surface. The ball behaves as the percussion trigger, and sensors inside translate noise via Bluetooth to a dedicated app. The harder you bounce it the more intense the sound, the lighter you bounce it the more delicate. Users can play around with beats, looping them to make original tunes, or even adding them to existing tracks and share their creations. For more advanced users, the round instrument also works as a MIDI controller in apps like Ableton, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, and Garageband. Oddball can easily be recharged over USB, and includes an app preloaded will all kinds of effects. watch the video below
