Following on from the success of our light-up drumsticks we are now developing the worlds first Motion Activated tap to change colour version...
You may have seen our original Light-Up Drumsticks on ITV's "Britain's got Talent" (if not check out our video above). They are also used by numerous artists such as Kesha and Johnny Jenkins who drums for Example, Lily Allen and The Streets.
By helping us reach our goal you can choose one of our rewards and you will be one of the first to own the new colour change drumsticks. The planned retail is £24.99 per pair.
Custom Sound Wave Rewards feature a special process to include your choice of NAME or BAND NAME and the "sound wave" design along one side of the stick. As you can see on the photos below this produces an amazing effect and pattern in the air...
The biggest challenge during prototyping was deciding on the best material to use. During this stage we tested many materials but no other transparent material gave the overall strength and reliability of Lexan (TM). We even drove over the sticks in a van to prove their strength!
Another key area was the design of the drumstick tips. We need to "catch" the light after it travels along the shaft and reaches the end of the sticks. We have tested many stick surface finishes in the past but by far the most spectacular is our unique frosting on the tip. To compliment this we have added the option of our "Sound Wave" design that features a special process along one side of the stick (see photos above).
Battery choice was key but eventually a straightforward decision with the tried and tested LR44 being the obvious choice due to their size, availability and cost. Each stick uses 3 batteries (as shown in the image below) but LEDs draw very little power so these will need to be replaced very rarely.
The final big decision was the selection of colours for the new drumsticks. We chose the best selection of colours based on giving an variety of lighting effects in just one pair of drumsticks (see our video above).
We have produced our pre-production samples (see our pitch video above). With funding we are able to take the following steps to start production:
NEW! The latest Spec:
• RockStix2HD NEON - Use a our specially selected CLASS A LED, for a brighter effect, with no extra drain on the batteries.
• Available in four amazing colors: NEON RED, NEON GREEN, NEON BLUE, and NEON MULTI-COLOR CHANGE 13 FX! Also available with SOUNDWAVE EFFECT (check out RockStix other listing)
• Each pair includes long lasting batteries, that can be replaced. The body of the sticks are made from Poly-Carbonate plastic, as used in police riot shields.
• Each stick has a frosted tip - to give a "Hot Spot" of bright light, and fade out gradually once hit.
• Our RockStix2HD Standard and NEON Range improves upon the original with some improvements to the reliability and color brightness.
