Does the world really need an iPad + iPhone ukulele?
That’s the first thing that this demo of Amidio’s Fututele brought to mind. Combine an iPad, and iPhone, a special case and a couple of apps and you’ve got a franken-ukulele that takes the place of real ukuleles that you can get for $40 at Guitar Center.
Amidio’s developed some interesting apps previously, especially the Seline Ultimate virtual instrument. But this is the sort of thing that Boing Boing and Engadget are going to freak out about.
With virtual instruments, there’s an opportunity to make them smarter, more flexible or more connected than traditional instruments. Realistically, though, a virtual ukulele is probably going to sell a lot better than a completely original virtual instrument.
