You may not have noticed this at first, but the Artiphon Instrument 1 has been assembled to accommodate the insertion of your iPhone 5 seamlessly within its design. The result is a harmonious-looking contraption, -- despite its many different parts -- that offers the freedom and the incredible potential of a smart music maker. The cutting-edge product is compact, lightweight and wonderfully ergonomic, inviting you to play it in several orientations with a great diversity of sounds.
The body of the music controller is made from sustainably sourced bamboo and hardwood, taking a shape that can be held as a guitar, a violin, a base or a keyboard. The combined interfaces of your smartphone and the musical instrument's own buttons help you to browse the beautiful noises that can be made with the virtual frets and strings by your fingertips.
