How would you like your iPad to transform into a band playing guitar? Here’s another Kickstarter project called the iTar where it’s a guitar dock which will house your iPad and turn it into a music jamming device. The core part of the device is a button-based guitar fretboard (Starr Labs patented fingerboard) which is probably similar to the device used for Guitar Hero.
The project is designed for musicians, electronic artists and guitar heroes to take their act on the road. The people behind the idea has created custom instruments for the likes of Michael Jackson and Linkin Park. What they lack currently is the capital needed to mass produce an affordable equipment for a much wider audience. There will also be potential for app developers to create custom music apps for this device where you can use the iPad for strumming and customizing the fingerboard for special uses.
If you’re interested to see this project go through, you can pledge $200 for a full edition iTar or $100 where you get a smaller version of the iTar. Support the project before the December 6th 2011.
