Aerodrums Air Drumming Instrument Played At Opening Keynote Of CES 2018


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) We are planning ahead for when Augmented Reality technology will enable you to materialise a drum set in a room at the push of a button.

Aerodrums today celebrates the live playing of an experimental variant of its air drumming instrument as part of a ground breaking musical performance introducing Intel's keynote at CES 2018.

Percussionist Sergio CarreƱo accompanied pianist Kevin Doucette in a jazz improvisation featuring artificially intelligent avatars playing guitar and bass.

The air drums played by Sergio are custom made in a collaboration between Aerodrums and Intel, using Intel's Movidius Myriad 2 computer vision chip.

The Aerodrums air drumming instrument has been available since January 2014, and is now played by thousands of musicians and learners worldwide.

"Playing air drums feels different to playing physical drums, but I was amazed at how quickly I could play Aerodrums. It is surprisingly expressive and a joy to play," said Sergio.

The instrument was created to enable people who could not have a drum set at home to play and learn drums.

"We are planning ahead for when Augmented Reality technology will enable you to materialise a drum set in a room at the push of a button. The Movidius chip enables us to achieve motion tracking with improved accuracy, which is useful for 3D visualisation, without sacrificing the responsiveness of the Aerodrums instrument" said Richard Lee, Aerodrums founder and product developer.

Aerodrums is a Liverpool company founded by Richard Lee and Yann Morvan in 2011 to develop and commercialise tools for drummers. It has sold over 18,000 Aerodrums instruments since launch.
