Strange Musical Instruments: One day, at a BBQ restaurant in Shinjuku, Tokyo, iPhone lovers were getting together to have a good time.
One of the guys was performing guitar with an iPhone application. Then he said,”I want a guitar amp for this” to someone from Bird Electron, a company known for its speaker design for iPod/iPhone.
And, out of this, the EVENNO Fingerist iPod keytar thing was invented.
Actually, there’s more to the story.
EVENNO notes that “In its new product planning meetings, alcohol serves as a lubricant to come up with extraordinary ideas.”We’ve mentioned the Fingerist previously – but now official specs and pricing are available.
The Fingerist is a new iPhone/iPod touch accessory that lets you play your applications as if you are actually playing musical instruments. This music adapter has a built-in speaker that operates on 3 AA batteries, which will should let you play up to 6 hours.
Fingerist can be used as an audio speaker when you simply want to play music louder. And, since it has a built-in line-out for a guitar amplifier, you just need to plug in the amplifier and adjust the volume to enjoy a live performance.
iPhone 3G/3GS and iPod touch (2nd/3rd?firmly fit to The Fingerist with the silicone case which is included in the package.
The Fingerist is priced at US $150.00.
