Laser Beam Music System – USB Powered
The Sharper Image does seem to come out with some cool stuff. Example, they announced a laser beam music system powered by USB. The music system is shaped like a big “W” with laser beams spanning each post. Using your fingers or hands, breaking the laser beams produces pre-authored sounds.
Although it appears simplistic with only 6 laser strings, the pre-authored pulses allow you to play pulses, streams, riffs and loops from a variety of instrument selections. Configure the laser beam music system to play strings, keyboards, winds and percussion instruments.
The laser beam music system from Sharper Image includes 30 original songs in 19 different music genres. Genres include Jazz, bluegrass, classical, hip-hop, reggae, heavy metal and more.
The system connects to your PC or laptop via USB. It’s also powered over the USB bus. You do need speakers with the laser beam music system to hear the high-fidelity sound The Sharper Image is claiming.
“With the beamz, there should be no performance anxiety at all because — whichever beam you break, in whatever sequence — your music is guaranteed to be harmonious. All discordant chords and sour notes have been programmed out — everyone can play worry free; and everyone can relax and enjoy listening to the wonderful music.”
The cost is a meager $599 with optional 3 and 5 year warranties. Product becomes available April 15th, a great item for that tax credit we’re supposedly getting.
