Norwegian company Aalberg Audio has developed the world's first ever remote-controlled effects pedal for electric guitars. The setup starts with the Ekko delay pedal that is hooked up by a cable like any regular effects pedal. However, it can be wirelessly controlled by the Aero, an attachment that can be placed on the guitar's strap or belt. This setup eliminates the need for players to have to physically go to the pedal each time they want to tweak an effect.

The Aero attachment comes with a rechargeable battery and can communicate with the effects pedal from up to 30 meters away. Players can roam around the stage while still activating and controlling their pedal effects.

Aalberg Audio's effects pedal revolution is not quite complete just yet however, as it depends on the fate of their crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. A pledge of $249 will get you one unit in March 2015 if and when the product hits its fundraising goal. Stats for Wireless Guitar Pedals Trending: This Quarter & Buzzing
