At the moment, those limits are demonstrated by Pritish A R, an 11-year-old from Australia who set a world record (certified by Guinness) for most drumbeats played in a minute. The record was set on December 16 of last year when he managed 2,370(!!!) beats in 60 seconds. (Read the full story here.)

The kid isn’t just fast. He’s got a good groove, too.
