Virtual guitar becomes reality

A guitar with no strings attached has become a reality. British researchers have created a “stringless” virtual guitar that is putting the power of music in the palms of people’s hands.

The guitar’s developers, London-based music tech startup Kurv founded in 2014, say that the new guitar will allow anyone to learn and play songs in a matter of minutes, even if they have never picked up a real guitar.

The Kurv Guitar does not look much like a guitar – it consists of a button pad that fits neatly into the player’s hand and an oversized, sensor-packed guitar pick that recognizes strumming movements. The player strums the air with a pick-style controller, simulating real guitar playing.
