When we first saw the Jamstik at CES this year we called it amazing. Now you can call it yours.
The Jamstik is a MIDI guitar with real strings. It allows you to fret and strum like a real guitar and you can even roll up the octaves by pressing a button on the device. It connects to iOS devices and outputs a MIDI signal that can be used in almost any audio program including Garage Band and Sunrizer.
The device is just 15 inches long and is completely portable. It can teach you how to play guitar by following your hands as you fret or it can mimic other instruments using MIDI voices. In short, it’s a portable git-fiddle with quite a few cool features.
You can fund the project here and buy a Jamstik for $199. They are looking for $100,000 and have already hit $78,000 so there’s an excellent chance this will ship.
