Clap Drums is using build-in sensors inside smartphone and smartwatch to detect patterns when you clap different parts of your body.


All you have to do is:

  • open Clap Drums app and put your phone inside your pocket (upside down and screen side touching your leg)
  • open accompanying gear 1/2 (neo) app
  • clap your legs in different places to activate different percussion sounds (follow the tutorial or watch demonstration video)
