About this project
Have you ever secretly played air guitar to your favorite song? With the Air Guitar Move you finally can play air guitar for real. All you need is an iPhone or iPod Touch and you will instantly feel like a rock star (hangovers not included). The unique Air Guitar Move motion sensing guitar pick allows you to strum in the air, and your iPhone becomes a guitar. Imagine how much fun it is to really move instead of just tapping and shaking.
The team behind Air Guitar Move previously created the award winning V-Beat AirDrums and V-Beat AirGuitar, Amazon UK's best selling music toys and Thumbies, the first iPhone game controller available at Best Buy.
Support this project and make the world a slightly more fun place. Donated money will be used to fund production and will give you a chance to be the first to own the Air Guitar Move this fall. If that won't impress your friends, we don't know what else will.
Nintendo Wii proved that moving is more fun than pressing buttons, Air Guitar Move proves that moving is more fun than tapping and shaking your iPhone. Here's how it works: Hold the iPhone in one hand like a guitar neck, strum the Ultimate Guitar Pick in the air with your other hand and, yes, you're now playing air guitar.
Music is in the air.
In our case, literally.
Air Guitar Move for iPhone is a rhythm action game (think Guitar Hero) with new game play features specially designed for mobile and allows you to rock to your favorite music. That is not all. Air Guitar Move also includes an easy to use free play app that will boost your creativity. Both apps are controlled by the motion sensing guitar pick that easily connects to your 30-pin dock connector on your iPhone and iPod Touch..
Air Guitar Move will come in two versions: in black and in a limited edition iron man red. The black guitar pick is manufactured in high quality plastic. The limited edition is a red anodized aluminum guitar pick with a laser etched serial number. Serial number 1 is reserved for the highest bidder on our Kickstarter project. So if you want to own serial number 1, bid high.
Manufactured by the best manufacturers.
In HiFi quality.
We're working with the best people in the industry. The Air Guitar Move will be manufactured in the same factory where Guitar Hero was built. The former Guitar Hero engineering team is overseeing production.
Colin and Ronald, the team behind this project, love music games and gadgets. In another lifetime (or 4 years ago) Colin created 'The Mercenary' a robotic paintball sentry gun, that processed live video from an onboard camera and automatically shot at paintball players it could see. Later on, after inventing Thumbies, he made the decision to leave school in Minnesota and join the real world in San Francisco. Thumbies went on to become the first iPhone game controller to be sold in Best Buy. Colin met Ronald through a mutual friend and the two have been kicking ass since January.
Ronald moved from Holland to San Francisco a year ago with the idea to change iPhone music gaming. After a year of couch surfing (thank you couchsurfing.org!) in the Bay Area and much networking in the Silicon Valley startup scene, the Air Guitar Move is the first product to come out of that vision. Back in Europe, Ronald created the award winning V-Beat AirDrums and AirGuitar music toys, the #1 best selling music toys on Amazon UK and bChamp Beatbox, a popular iPhone music app that was endorsed by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
Help fund this project and make the world a (slightly) more fun place. Thanks for your support.

Air Guitar Move was specifically designed for use by people who want to be a rock star but didn't bother to learn how to play real guitar. Air Guitar Move is not meant to replace a real guitar.
Arcade and Free Play will work with the guitar pick right out of the box. We expect to support more guitar games in the future. If you are the developer of an iPhone guitar game and are interested in supporting the Air Guitar Move, please send us an email.
The Air Guitar Move shown in the video is a real working product. Apple has approved the product plan and is currently certifying the hardware. The free play and arcade apps are in development. Keep an eye on the updates tab, as we will share more videos and details.
Air Guitar Move will come with two free games, Arcade and Free Play.
Because we genuinely believe playing air guitar is cool. We also love creating gadgets and cool music apps.
