Tin foil shield,
in case the aliens try to read his guitar's thoughts.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

It's a Kaos Pad, I think Korg make them, basically it's a MIDI controller

It connects to a MIDI interface and can be used to control effects. Google it, there's a load of videos on Youtube too

Essentially yes. Google it for a full answer. Kaoss pads are very very fun to play with.

It's a dance floor.
He tosses his guitar on the floor and dances on it, then when everyone is having a ball he'll be all "the f*ck is this, a circus? Muse is serious music. Get the f*ck out of my concert."

John Travolta style?


Any style. He dances a new dance every day.
Matthew Bellamy did the moon walk before the moon was even discovered.
Matthew Bellamy also invented the running man while sleep walking. Walking being the key word. Bellamy is fast.
Matthew Bellamy finally invented slam dancing when he fell down the stairs.

**** ME! I can't believe I missed that!

It's called a Kaos touch pad. It has X and Y axises that allow for manipulation of effects through MIDI. Like controlling the oscillation of his Fuzz Factory or his wah/whammy. What have you.
