The piece of equipment in question is Korg's Kaoss Pad, and it's a bit special. It's essentially just a sampler, but with LOADS of other cool features that let you record and mess about with what you've just sampled 'on the fly' in real time. I'm trying not to get too technical here!
This video is of Brighton-based, two-times UK Champion Beatboxer - Beardyman and his little rubber duck. Every sound you hear is straight from this bloke's gob. Not only does the video show off the immense capabilities of the Kaoss Pad, but it's cool as hell too...
Even if you're a complete technophobe it's well worth a look and keep an eye out for Beardyman at a Bodytonic event near you late November!
I don't know about you, but I want one!
