What It Is
Give your air guitar performance more of a realistic feel with AirJamz. This is a Bluetooth-enabled guitar pick that works with a free app to allow you to “play” a variety of different songs just by strumming your air guitar with the pick. The pick is available in black or red, and connecting it to the app is very easy. Just download the iOS or Android app from the Apple App or Google Play store, open the app, turn on the pick, and watch the two connect via Bluetooth. Then, you can access the app's music library to pick a song. You can download 25 songs for free, and other songs can be purchased separately, with additional content being added to the app each month. Once you pick the song, you'll have the option to play one of four instrument parts. You can actually connect up to four AirJamz picks at once so that you and your friends can play all of the parts together. If you're playing solo, you can play a backing track to make your part sound better. Just start strumming in the air, and with each strum you'll hear the song you've chosen play. And, the AirJamz app can run in the background, which means that you can record yourself playing on other apps, such as Snapchat or Instagram.
Is It Fun?
This lets wannabe rock stars have a little more authenticity by giving them a guitar pick to strum with, even if there's nothing for them to actually strum. Unlike music-playing video games, you don't need to have skill in order to play the song. You just have to strum. This will be fun for kids and adults to play with solo, but the real fun comes into play when you get three of your friends to play with you to create a four-piece air guitar rock band.
Who It’s For
AirJamz is for ages 6 and up. And we really mean the “and up” part. Kids and adults who love playing video games such as Guitar Hero and air-guitaring whenever they get the chance will really enjoy the music-playing fun with this Bluetooth guitar pick and app.
What To Be Aware Of
The AirJamz pick comes with a replacable standard coin battery that should last for 12 to 15 hours of active playtime. To preserve the battery life, the pick will turn itself off after two minutes of inactivity.
The AirJamz app is a free download for iOS and Android devices with Bluetooth capability.
