Rock Band 3 for Mac

An Macintosh designed for a VERY highly literate Chinese author who is a touch typist. The footpedals are perhaps for additional shift modes.

Alternative - for creating truely multi-tonal music - one-mand-band style.

That looks to me like an electronic drum set, patched into the computer for recording, tweaking, looping, etc. The funky drum heads look like programmable hotspots, to give a different tonal range to each area.

Mystery pic 117 is an easy one. Its the prototype of the new iDrums from Apple. Since it starts with the letter 'i', millions of iDroids will flock to it and buy it by the boatloads. The drumsticks on the table are really giant chopsticks left over from Yao Ming's lunch. Yao was brought into this because the iDrums will be manufactured in China, where Yao has connections.

It was Google Japan's April Fools joke this year -- several keyboards with every Japanese glyph, designed to replace the "more awkward" row-based keyboards and composition keys.
