Not to brag but my air guitar is incredible. My scales, taps, sweeps, dive bombs etc., etc., are all flawless. But when i try to pull them on my
Strat. well,...not so much. :shk:

Aspiring rock gods can at last create their own guitar solos - without ever having to pick up a real instrument, thanks to a group of Finnish computer
The Virtual Air Guitar project, developed at the Helsinki University of Technology, adds genuine electric guitar sounds to the passionately played air
Using a computer to monitor the hand movements of a "player", the system adds riffs and licks to match frantic mid-air finger work. By responding
instantly to a wide variety of gestures it promises to turn even the least musically gifted air guitarist to a virtual fret board virtuoso.
Aki Kanerva, Juha Laitinen and Teemu Mäki-Patola came up with the idea after being invited to develop a virtual instrument as part of their
coursework. "The first thing that came to mind was an air guitar," Kanerva told New Scientist.
