Use the Rock Band drums with your PC

This is more of a proof of concept than a practical application, but one ingenious gamer/programmer has decided to configure the Rock Band drum kit to work with your Windows PC. You can follow the relatively simple steps at his blog or download his self-made installer that reportedly does most of the work for you.

Right now, though, there's nothing else to do with this pseudo-hack but hit a drum pad and watch it register in a configuration window. We don't expect we'll have to wait long, though, for drum-controlled flash games: platformers, Tetris clones, maybe even a rhythm game (if we're lucky).
