gTar is a fully digital guitar which has an inbuilt iPhone dock that makes use of certain sensors that interpreted what you are trying to play to the iPhone app which is specially designed for this purpose. gTar consists of strings and a fret board layout that encourages the feel of a traditional guitar. And also the gTar has been regarded more as a learning tool rather than being a replacement of the musical instrument. There are LED lights that keep showing you how to play those songs that are preloaded on the app. The only thing we consider is missing are the inbuilt speakers but a pair of Bluetooth headsets don’t hurt much.
gTar has only a few days to reach the $100,000 funding which was their target. Also that one needs to have spare money $350 to get one when it ships in the month of September. The product will hit the retail of $450 at the eventual status.
Now, getting on to the features of the guitar. The guitar boasts around itself saying that it is the first guitar that can be played by anyone. It was designed by California based company called Incident Technologies. There is an app on the iPhone which has been specially designed for the gTar. When you dock the iPhone on the hardware and the app is loaded then the LEDs start working showing you how to play the guitar.
Also gTar does not use pickups to amplify the strings instead, sensors are used for the detection of strings when played in the real time and sent to the phone and so then the phone produces the actual sound.
Hence this sounds a boon for those who aspire to play the guitar but are unable to.
