Low Quality Video

Here we have some more video of P.E.A.R.T. in action. All of these clips are really low quality clips that were taken with a digital camera. The frame rate on the camera was so low that you often don't even see the sticks swinging (they move very quickly... the top speed for each individual stick is 19 hits per second!!!). You should probably right click on the links and choose "Save As" to save them to your hard drive rather than trying to stream them.

Testing of mechanical device This was the first testing of an individual device.  This is a good example of how fast the stick moves.  Many times you never even see it move because the camera isn't fast enough to pick it up!!!
Hi-Hat Test
This is the testing of the hi-hat device.  This one pedal was by far, the hardest device to incorporate.
Stone Roses - Love Spreads - I This is Mike playing Love Spreads with P.E.A.R.T. the first night we got everything set up.
Stone Roses - Love Spreads - II  
Love Spreads - Drums Only This is the same song, but drums only.  The beginning shows the software that Mike wrote that allows the user to map all of the requested drums to the drums that are available.
