CES 2008: Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker strums up a storm

CES 2008, Gadgets, Top stories

This is the best gadget bar none at CES 2008. I’m telling you, it is. The Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker is a gadget from Jada Toys, it’s out in March for $29.99 (with UK distribution following), and it lets you crank out fat air guitar riffs from Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Motorhead, Van Halen and Boston.

It consists of a guitar pick, a belt buckle, and a wearable mini amplifier. When you strum the pick in front of the belt, you unleash RAWK MAYHEM. I’m talking Iron Man, Smoke On The Water, Ace Of Spades, and More Than A Feeling. Watch the video above, and tell me this isn’t genius.

Jada Toys appear to have got official Guitar Hero branding for the gadget, although don’t be confused – you don’t actually use it to play Guitar Hero the game. Jada told me that once it comes out, there’ll be follow-up expansion packs, for example 80s Rock. Out of everything I’ve seen at CES, this is the gadget I most want when it comes out.

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
