Tokyo-based Daito Manabe has done a string of body hacking and physical computing experiments and workshops. In his latest work, he and Masaki Teruoka convert his body into a drumming machine by creating a program that uses myoelectric sensors to detect activity on his skin.

Drumming is initiated by tapping on his skin or when he makes particular movements (like moving his nose or cheeks muscles).

Watch the video demo below:
