The beat goes on

In a recent interview with a young inventor from Hull, I learnt about the inspiration behind his innovative creation.

Aseem Mishra was crowned the winner of the senior age group title at the Young Engineer of Great Britain Competition for his pair of jeans that can be used as a drum kit.

"Taking a drum kit around is such a hassle and I have a band and whenever we gig we fill the whole car up with the drum kit. At the time I was tapping on my legs and thought wouldn't it be cool if I could put a drum kit in my trousers?" Aseem said.

Next month, the young inventor will be jetting off to Los Angeles to represent the country at the Intel Science & Engineering Fair.
