In recent years, a new breed of musicians has come to be, which includes the likes of Guitar Heroes and Rock Band sensations. The iTar has been conceived to cater to this class of technology-loving virtuosos as an innovative add-on to the Apple iPad.

StarrLabs has been developing cutting-edge instruments for professional musicians for years, and the iTar project marks their latest endeavor to delight mainstream consumers. The team has designed an intelligent and inventive fingerboard, which is manufactured with a case attached for the insertion of a tablet.

The piece therefore loosely takes on the appearance of an electric guitar, affording the user the means to rock out on it as if it actually had strings. Combined with a comprehensive app, the iTar can become just about any musical instrument you fancy for a little play. Stats for Tablet-Embedded Instruments Trending: Older & Mild
