AirJamz: Air Guitar — For Real

$37,584

546

Our Kickstarter Project has finished, but the story continues!

We can't wait to see what everyone does with AirJamz! We are so excited to be able to donate over 40 AirJamz to music therapy, and know that plenty of awesome stories are going to come out of this project as well.

To learn more and order an AirJamz, head over to Air-Jamz.com

Why did we make AirJamz?

Simply put, we created it for people to have FUN with music in a whole new way, and built it with musical expression in mind. AirJamz gives you the opportunity to play just about any music you can think of with our included apps, and the wristband and pick accessory are just the beginning of how the system can be used.

How does it work?

Check out a demo video of the AirJamz to hear what it can do!

Who is it for?

While it's one of the first motion-based music devices on the market, AirJamz isn't just for musicians. If you can play air guitar, you can make music with airjamz, and we want everyone to have the experience of being musical. On the other hand, AirJamz has the potential to add another layer of musical expression for musicians who already play instruments.

Why are we on Kickstarter?

We wanted to build an affordable interface for motion-driven musical interaction, so we built a number of musical experiences for it and launched on Kickstarter to invite early-adopters and makers to help us make it possible. Kickstarter is the only place you'll be able to order an AirJamz until we deliver to our backers by this August.

"AirJamz looks like a fitness tracker, but is actually a wearable air guitar." - Yahoo! News

"As if you needed further proof of its credentials, AirJamz is the official air guitar of US Air Guitar, which is the sport's official governing body in the US. Seriously." - Trusted Reviews

"Educational? Hell no. Fun? Indeed. Which is quite refreshing, seeing as every other wearable around is hellbent on making us get fitter." - Digital Spy

"Want to turn air guitar into a reality? [AirJamz] is shaping up to be a fun wearable for the whole family." - Paste Magazine

"I don't often promote Kickstarter projects {...}, but Zivix is a known entity and I have already tried the almost finished product." - iPhone Life

AirJamz may not save the world, (though the official mission of air guitar is actually world peace), or teach you guitar, but it might change your life. Have you ever played air guitar, FOR REAL!? Yep, that's what AirJamz does; and it quite literally makes you feel musical, no matter what your background or the type of music you'd like to play. 

So what else is AirJamz?

We had a blast at SXSW in Austin, TX last month filming some initial reactions with our air-guitar app!

Slap an AirJamz on your wrist, your friend’s wrist or your kid's wrists. Pair them with one of the the companion apps, pick a song from the list, and start strumming. Your movements now make any musical sound! It’s air guitar like you’ve never heard before; and simple, instant fun for anyone. 

Zivix has been building music apps for a long time, and we've already partnered with two amazing companies to help build the experience. Our apps will feature hundreds of instrument sounds and melodies, modeled guitar sounds, and plenty of tracks to play along with. Along with that, we're including a variety of music genre's that we are producing in house, one note at a time. What type of music would you like to hear? Let us know!

Apps will be available for both Android and Apple devices

2. STAY IN TOUCH— Once you have made your pledge, message us with any questions or comments you have! You'll get an email with weekly project updates and you'll be in the know about production status, inside news, and more.

3. RELAX— After the project ends, we will send you an official backer survey to collect your shipping information. We'll also ask for your color selections and if you would like any add-ons. Until then, help us spread the word about our campaign when you can, and know that you've got an awesome piece of music technology coming your way!

Have you heard of the jamstik? We’re those people. Last year we ran a very successful campaign for the jamstik+. True to our word, we manufactured and delivered thousands of jamstik+’s to our amazing Kickstarter supporters, and we're excited to be here again.

Last time around, we donated over 200 jamstik+'s to schools, music therapy, veterans programs and other great causes. We’re ready to do it again! For every 20 AirJamz, we're going to donate 1 to music therapy & music medicine.

AirJamz has the potential to make music very accessible, especially in Music Therapy & Music Medicine. We've been in contact with some amazing organizations like MyMusicRX who are looking forward to receiving donated products and sharing them with patients. We can't wait to facilitate their efforts towards healing with music!

The successful funding of the AirJamz campaign means we get to take production full scale, kickstart the musical therapy programs in a number of organizations with our donation program, and plan for a future where our products and supporting software continue to get better. As supporters, you'll drive much of our future development, and we hope you participate in the conversation.

Thank you for your time, shares and support. Because of you, new ideas like AirJamz will come to life. We couldn't do it without you! - The Zivix Team

We'd love it if you told your friends about AirJamz!

Risks and challenges

Our company has the utmost confidence that we will deliver as promised, but it's important to know about potential for delay and issues that may arise with production. In our last campaign with the jamstik+, we fulfilled over 3,000 backers on time and plan to follow through with another seamless experience.

We’re ready to begin full production on the AirJamz as soon as this campaign ends, but as with any physical item there are challenges to getting it right and there is always the possibility of delays in manufacturing, and software (sometimes due to factors outside of anyone’s control!). In our efforts to avoid delays and produce the best product possible, we are selective in how we choose our partners and conservative in setting our timelines.

Quality control remains a major focus for us. We have implemented systems to catch as many product issues as possible before your AirJamz makes its way into your hands. If an issue does arise once we have shipped your AirJamz to you, we have a well-trained and helpful customer service team who will help troubleshoot any problems you have.

We can't wait to get you rocking, so please go back to the top of the page and pledge now!
