Part Man. Part Machine. All Drummer.

It looks like the robotic weapon arm of Trap Jaw from Masters of the Universe, but amputee Jason Barnes uses his new mechanical appendage to keep the beat. Or, at least, he uses half of it. The arm holds two drumsticks at once, but only one is controlled by Jason. The other improvises based on the rest of the tune being played. Otto Octavius warned us about such things, did he not?

Still, so long as the goal is to play rockin' percussion, and not create a mini nuclear reaction, we should be safe...for now. Check it out in action...
