Amp up your air guitarSeptember 23, 2008
A Japanese toy company just introduced an electronic air guitar. It consists of the headstock and upper neck of a guitar, with buttons on the neck corresponding to chords. The ‘strings’ are infrared light; just strum the air guitar, interrupting the beam, to play music. It comes in an electric or acoustic version (but really, who’d go for the acoustic version?)
I’m a little torn – on the one hand, this is an awesome gadget. On the other, it’s hard not to feel that it is a violation of the fundamental philosophy of air guitar – isn’t this now just another instrument?
If you’re unconflicted, you can buy one here.
