Oh my, take a look at this feat of ingenuity. Anyone who plays Rock Band or Guitar Hero World Tour and lives in a smallish apartment will appreciate how difficult it is to store the controllers without making them permanent fixtures in one of the rooms you use on a daily basis.
Believe it or not, my wife doesn’t care for the drumset that sits in our living room next to our TV. We have moderately nice furniture and then — BAM! — big plastic drumset. If I could turn back the clock, I would have pushed for this very ottoman instead of the faux rustic red wooden chest thingy we use as a coffee table.
See, this leather ottoman — the Rock Box — opens up and features a lift mechanism that pops your drumset out for some quick-and-easy rock. When you’re all done, just lower it back into the ottoman with an “easy one-hand motion.” It also has room for two guitars, the foot pedal, and a microphone. And at $200, it’s not outrageously priced, considering you’re also getting a handsome leather ottoman.
