PocketGuitar from Aeroband
PocketGuitar is a new type of instrument that is based on guitar music and can imitate the sound
of various instruments. Its appearance is similar to ordinary guitar picks, which can accurately
identify the amplitude and frequency of hand shake. Then the only thing is to connect to the
corresponding device through Bluetooth, and play the melody played by the simulated guitar,
bass, ukulele and other instruments.
Next is the contents of the PocketGuitar, including PocketGuitar body, One charging cable (Micro USB), one carrying pouch, Silicon cover with clip, and User’s Manual of course. The body is shaped like a thick guitar pick which is very light and only weighs 8g, a level that almost does not feel heavy. We can hold it just like holding the real thing. The charging port is at the top, and the terminal is also MicroUSB. Of course, the attached silicon case is perfect too. Since it has a clip on the back, it can be fixed by sandwiching it with shoelaces etc. when using it as a drum foot pedal.
The appearance is a black base, with a matte finish and feels like silicon, and has a gripping texture so that it does not slip off the hand. There is a hole for a strap on the back end, and a Micro USB terminal for charging. The Micro USB port has a lid, so open it by hand like this when charging. A glowing LED light is attached to the tip of the stick. LED lights have different emission colors for each stick. The right stick glows blue. The left stick glows orange. There is a power button in the middle of the stick. Power supply, control, and power supply. Power button functions: Press once (when not connected): Pair with smartphone or tablet (app). Press once (when connected): Adjust stick position. Long press (3 seconds): Power off.
HOW DOES AEROBAND POCKET GUITAR WORKS?
The air paddles are similar in appearance to ordinary guitar paddles. Its function is to accurately
identify the amplitude and frequency of hand jitters through gyroscope motion sensing technology. When the hand makes a movement similar to plucking the strings of a musical instrument, it gives out the melody played by the guitar and other instruments. The melody will be connected to the corresponding device via Bluetooth.
This technology is achieved though a specific Inertial AI chip and a unique space calculating algorithm. These core technologies make PocketGuitar be able to capture your movement in 3- dimensional space.
