    Just picked one of these up and it's very cool. Uses some type of piezo element to transfer the beat through vibration/pulse in addition to or in lieu of an audible click. I find it perfect for practicing with the lady without having the metronome have to be louder than the tv. It also makes you really feel the beat and internalize it.

    Very cool!

    It doesn't go lower than 40bpm though, which I recall was something you advocated looking for in a metronome.

    Cool, they should market this for golfers too, to practice getting your swing in tempo. Though I gues you don't want to feel a pulse in your back swing.

    Very cool Jack!

    I'm no electronics wiz, but I would imagine that it wouldn't be too tough to rig a disposable camera's electronics with a timer / switch to "taser" yourself at intervals, in a metronomic fashion.....

    hmmmmmm....

    Me sees dollar signs....:AOK
