Has there ever been any consideration for a "ZenDrum mini"? I'm thinking a tabletop unit with maybe up to ten triggers that you put next to your laptop and play one-handed. It would have a more "palm friendly" shape and layout, like my LT. If it weighed under 1lb., I would really love to be able to tote something like this around along with my laptop. To actually be useful in that case, it would need to be free of AC power. One USB port that powers it from the laptop and that's also the MIDI connection would do it. Eliminate the user interface stuff entirely to save power, weight, and space, instead providing a software utility that for the LED readout and parameter selection. The idea is: cheap, light and portable, yet usefully playable.
Is this feasible as a custom job, or would it require so much re-engineering that it would be too costly?
