Nothing new at all.They have been around since the 1920's.You can order a cymbal with rivets installed from any cymbal maker.They are a custom order,except with swish cymbals which come with rivets installed.Most 5 star drum shops can drill and install rivets for you.

Meinl also has a line of cymbals with rivets in them.

You can also get some ball bearing chains and put that on a cymbal to give a nice sizzle sound.

I used to use pull chains like you have on ceiling fans.That way you didn't have to drill holes in your cymbal.I have a late 60's A Zildjian 20" ping ride with 8 rivet holes in it,and it does sound different.
