    If I remember correctly, the patent was specifically about processing the waves after hitting the head, right?
    Meaning there wasn't something preventing other companies from figuring out other ways to do that.
    Like...I don't know...triangulating the hit position based on signal from three cones perfectly placed around the head...

        i personally do not care about todays positional sensing technology. It was more a marketing strategy than a real development, ah...did i mentioned that i
        hate center triggers? Lets see, maybe we will see a camera supported system or any other sensor system, capacitative heads for example.

        thinking about slate to adapt P.S. on the mimic before delivering crashes with sticksounds is just ridiculous.

          Thanks angr77. I'm very glad to see patents of this sort coming to an end, as this opens the electronic drum market to greater innovation and greater competition. This technology has great expressive potential, so as other manufacturers come on board, I hope the technology evolves to provide more usable results. I'm especially interested to see if the hot-spot problem can be eliminated.
