Air Guitar Pro
Got a yen to play guitar? Are your friends telling you to stop with the air guitar? Then you need the TakaraTomy Air Guitar which, as you can see, has a guitar neck and some chord buttons on the fretboard but nothing else.
It works by using an infrared sensor in the neck of the guitar to detect your hand motions. While the battery-operated Air Guitar does have a built-in speaker, you can also connect it to an external amplifier when you want to crank up the volume. But practice first, ok?
For beginners -- and that's all of you -- the Air Guitar comes preloaded with ten tracks for beginners to play along with. Among the tunes: Are You Gonna Be My Girl (Jet), Walk This Way (Aerosmith), and Smoke on the Water (Deep Purple). All those tunes that, if you play them in a guitar stor, would get you immediately expelled
Importer HimeyaShop will start selling them for $27 on July 25th, but pre-orders are being taken now.
