Connects to a wearable, mini-amplifier

At the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Jada Toys, Inc. has unveiled the Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker, an electronic toy based on Activision.'s blockbuster video game franchise, Guitar Hero.

With this new toy, consumers are able to unlock their inner rock star anywhere and jam to signature guitar riffs made famous by Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Motorhead, Van Halen and Boston, as well as five original Air Guitar Rocker freestyle riffs. Available in US stores in March 2008 for a suggested retail price of $29.99, we understand the product will also be hitting the UK later this year.

The Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker features patented technology which includes guitar pics and a rockin' belt buckle that connects to a wearable, mini-amplifier. With an air guitar in hand, the user waves the pic over the belt buckle to determine the tempo of the song. The product comes with an Air Cartridge that features 10 guitar riffs, ranging in skill level from 1-5, including Black Sabbath's "Iron Man," Deep Purple's "Smoke on the Water," Motorhead's "Ace of Spades," Van Halen's "You Really Got Me", Boston's "More Than a Feeling," and five original Air Guitar Rocker freestyle riffs. Users are encouraged to listen to the demo tracks, then try to master the riffs on their own. The product can also be connected to external speakers.
