Jason Barnes is known as the "Bionic Drummer." Barnes began drumming at age 14, but lost his arm in an electrocution accident in 2011. After learning that he could tape a drumstick to his stump, Barnes continued to pursue his passion and eventually met and began collaborating with Gil Weinberg, a researcher and professor at Georgia Tech's School of Music. Barnes holds the world record for most drumbeats in one minute (2400) using a drumstick prosthetic.
An accident left this musician with one arm. Now he is helping create future tech for others with disabilities.
