Default Remember Ringo's Inflatable Drums From The Cartoon? Now it Is A Reality

Not sure what to make of these They seem a bit like moving target.
Maybe good for a stage act or something along those lines.

At summer NAMM, 1986, a guy was walking around with an inflatable drum, trying to generate interest (investments.) It was a vinyl or Naugahide "shell" fitted with actual edges and hoops. The drum wasn't exactly airtight, it was really more of a collapsible thing to save space. In use, the shell was kept expanded by metal struts that fit between the top and bottom hoops.

As expected, it sounded pretty dark and mushy, and was never heard from again.

Last week I was playing a Who song.
And I was thinking about blowing up my drums.
