Air guitar T-shirt is nominated for an SXSW award‎

275x250.jpgA T-shirt which can be use as a musical instrument when the wearer plays it air-guitar-style, has been shortlisted for a SXSW technology award.

The interactive 'AiR Guitar' is a t-shirt with a "barcode"-type symbol on the front, which - when picked up via a webcam and augmented reality app - becomes a guitar.

Wearers can them play the virtual air guitar by strumming away in real-time with the relevant notes sounds from the computer.

AiR Guitar was invented by design company FauvelKhan, which was founded by Swansea Metropolitan students, and created for south Wales band The Last Republic.

But after being shortlisted for a SXSW Accelerator award they now hope it could be sold across the music industry… they are not Fret-ing about it though.
