I’ve always fancied myself a bit of an air guitar fiend . The few attempts at which friends have made to teach me actual guitar or bass riffs have ended, for the most part, in unmitigated disaster and tears. I’m just too much of a delicate flower to spend the time building up the necessary calluses on my fingertips.
That’s why scientists—actual scientists —have
develped a T-shirt that can convert strumming and picking motions into music. Yes, my friends, an air guitar shirt . Researchers at Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization in computing, chemistry, electronics, music composition, and textile manufacture have combined their awesome powers to create this “wearable instrument shirt,” which could one day enable all of us to live in our own personal Wayne’s World.
