Bubblegum Drum Sequencer Goes One Better, Has Edible Parts

If you liked the ball-bearing tangible drum sequencer the other day, you'll love this: some students at UC Berkeley's School of Information have created a similar device, this time combining computer imaging and bubblegum balls to create bangin' tunes. Using a similar sort of hole-matrix, this version uses nifty software which detects the colour and position of the gumballs, which we think must open up the device to a few more drum effects than you can hear in the video, but whatever—it's worth it to see the dancing.

Does this remind any of you of this?


What about this one??


I think this is the best of all of them though, it seems the simplest to use.
