Perhaps you have seen the latest Ted Talk featuring beatboxer Nate Ball…
Well Nate’s bringing his beatbox to the 2012 competition amongst a host of
America’s illest BEATBOXERS! An extraordinary talent we are pretty amped for this MIT grad to bring his technical beats to the box!
A new entrant for the 2012 competition is TV personality and inventor Nate Ball. Ball is the host of the Emmy and Peabody award winning PBS show “Design Squad,” as well as an engineer, public speaker, longtime musician and beatboxer. In 2011 Ball turned a scientific eye toward his beatboxing pursuits, using functional MRI and laryngoscopy to examine what’s behind the human body’s ability to beatbox. He presented the investigations live at the TEDMED conference in October 2011 in San Diego, CA, featured on CNN.com
Check the video and get ready for some mind-blowing beatbox videos as the our online competition kicks off in April!!!
