ThinkGeek’s Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt- Wearable Rock!

We already here about the video game which gives us hot on the heels on the Guitar Hero, now here comes a wearable shirt that can actually played by the fingers. The Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt from ThinkGeek.

Using a magnetic pick and your fingers, you can actually strum and play the guitar printed on the shirt, almost like the real thing. It has Miniature amp included you just clip it in your belt or in the pocket. Turned on the mini amp, cranked the volume to 11 and Pooff!!,started to rock and plays back samples of all the major chords recorded from an actual electric guitar, and yes, the volume dial absolutely goes to 11.

Each button on the neck is a major chord. Remember never to use the Guitar Shirt for evil, meaning,never used it for preparing to call on the Demon of Rock and duel to the death for musical supremacy.

The Electronic Guitar Shirt is not a toy that plays pre-canned musical riffs, it is a real musical instrument that allows you to play your favorite songs and sound great doing it.

All major chords are recorded from a real electric guitar, and the included magnetic pick allows you to strum just like you would a real guitar.

The tone knob on the amp lets you adjust the sound just like a real guitar.

Peavey’s AmpKit LiNK, a portable electric guitar interface for the iPhone

Peavey Electronics and leading iPhone applications developer Agile Partners have joined forces to launch AmpKit, an unparalleled guitar amp and effects iPhone application, and AmpKit LiNK, a high fidelity audio interface for the iPhone, iPod touch* and iPad.

The AmpKit experience begins with the free AmpKit app (or it’s feature packed paid version AmpKit+) from the iTunes App Store. The application itself is very sleek, the primary interface is a virtual view of the amp head/cabinet, microphone and effects that you currently have set, giving you a good overview of all your settings. The interface also provides a number of preset configurations, a metronome and tuner, and an interface for recording clips and transferring them wirelessly to your PC or Mac. The second piece of the AmpKit experience is the AmpKit LiNK device. Just plug the device into the headphone jack on your iPhone and then plug in your guitar (via standard guitar cable) and a set of headphones into the AmpKit LiNK. Next, select one of the presets from the AmpKit app and you’re ready to go.

Which brings me to the final point on this device, with a price point of $39.99 for the hardware, the AmpKit LiNK is an affordable tool for any guitarist with an iPhone. New amps, effects and microphones can be purchased from within the AmpKit app for $4.99, $2.99 and $0.99 respectively which may seem a bit pricey when compared to other downloadable media. However, considering the costs of their real world counterparts and the quality of the sounds they produce, these prices are a bargain.
