Here is a clip of someone who calls himself "the Amazing David "Fingers" Haynes" drumming on an old and very battered Alesis HR-16B drum machine (triggering sounds from a Yamaha DTExpress). It's not quite this, but I love battered old plastic gear.

I must admit I fast forwarded a bit. Bet his girlfriend really likes it.
I actually think thats better than the Akai kid. If you're a drummer, you know the kind of finnesse it takes to pull of what he's doing on an acoustic kit. The Akai kid is just just playing some swung metal beat of some sort. Pales in comparison to this.
This is cool too: http://scratchmagazine.com/features/0806.Namm/fx1.html
Dude is running this device called a ZenDrum through a Muse Receptor, triggering sounds from Fxpansion's BFD. Very cool.
