Did Somebody Say 'iPhone Drum Circle?'




You've used it as a music player and to make calls, but did you ever think your phone would be useful at a drum circle? (Via YouTube)



A blog entry about a digital festival in New York City caught my eye with these three words: "iPhone Drum Circle." I didn't know whether this was genius or the most painful thing my ears could imagine, but my curiosity got the better of me.

I visited the iPhone Drum Circle (or IPDC) site to learn more. At 2 p.m. on Sunday an attempt will be made to totally jam out. If you're in the Brooklyn area and hate drum circles, you've been warned. If you're groovy and have an iPhone, you might just want to join in. If you do, please take some photos or shoot some video and tell us about it here.

In the video above, you can see some iPhone drums in action.
