NEXiLUX Guitar Controller

Posted in Controllers by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2010

This guitar hero controller is perfect for the player that shuttles his instrument back and forth between home and various friends homes. The NEXiLUX wireless guitar controller breaks down into just a few pieces and fits neatly inside a bag.

It’s compatible with the PS3 or PS2, but you can also slide a Wii-mote inside of it and use it with your Wii. The makers also claim that it has more responsive fret buttons than the cheap controllers that ship with the games. If you prefer touch over buttons, there’s a set of five touch-sensitive fret buttons too.

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on October 29th, 2009

Forget Air Guitar, play the Rock Guitar Shirt Now you can retire from your gig as air guitar rocker and play your shirt instead. This Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt even has its own mini amplifier. When you strum the shirt with the special magnetic pick, it delivers some awesome distorted-sounding guitar chords.

You can’t rock individual notes, but there are 15 different power cords, covering all the major keys. Once you figure out where to activate each of the chords on the shirt’s “frets,” just press your finger there and start strumming.

Engineering student builds humanoid robot that plays Guitar HeroAre you getting tired of rocking fake plastic guitars yet? Good. Me too. So now it’s time to build robots that can play it. Old one-eye here is basically a mannequin stuffed with robotic parts that allow it to play.

It was developed by engineering student Pete Nikrin with some help from Minnesota West Technical College. “Roxanne” responds to each note as it appears onscreen. The robot can read the notes in transitions between light and dark pixels using its left eye which has a camera implanted.

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on September 1st, 2009

Between Rock Band and Guitar Hero, it’s amazing you have any room left in your house that isn’t occupied by plastic instruments. Do you even have room for DJ Hero? Probably not. But here’s a clever solution.

This retractable Rock Band/Guitar Hero controller from NEXiLUX can fold down to a tiny size for easy storage. And it still has all the buttons you need to rock out. It’s compatible with the Wii, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3. Sadly there’s nothing on a price or release date just yet.

Kid plays Guitar Hero, solves 2 Rubik’s Cubes at the same time

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on August 9th, 2009

This kid is playing Guitar Hero on expert and solving two Rubik’s cubes simultaneously. Showoff! He goes by the handle of “JRefleX93”. And though he solves both cubes by the end of the video, he doesn’t hit every single note, but he hits more than you would have. With his elbow. In the end he has a 77% rating and his choice of nerd groupies.

This is six minutes of solid geek gold, until the end, when it fades to black and the kid gets too cocky letting out a groan that ruins the entire thing. But hey, props to this kid for six minutes of geek fun.

OpenChord allows real guitars to play Guitar Hero

Posted in Musical Instruments by Conner Flynn on August 7th, 2009

GuitarOpenChord has designed a system that allows an actual real guitar to sync up with your Nintendo Wii to play Guitar Hero. Just plug the Wiimote into the guitar and use real strings and frets instead of plastic buttons. There is one hitch and it’s a big one.

Guitar Hero wasn’t designed for use with six strings and 22 to 24 frets. Which kinda blows the whole thing out of the water. Too bad. Playing GH with a real guitar sounds like a nightmare. Who would have thought? Check out a video below.

logitechdrum-sbI am a fan of music games and have spent lots of time with Rock Band. It continues to bum me out that Logitech doesn’t offer any controllers for Rock Band even though it does make some of the coolest controllers for Guitar Hero.

Logitech announced its latest Guitar Hero controller for the PS3 today called the Logitech Wireless Drum Controller. The device connects to the PS3 via a 2.4GHz USB receiver and can last for up to 50 hours on a single pair of AA batteries.

logitechblackguitar-sbBack in January when I was at CES Logitech was showing off their red wireless guitar controller specifically for the Guitar Hero games. The controller was very cool, but was a very hard to find item available in only certain areas.

Logitech has now announced a new black version of the Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller Premiere Edition that will be available globally. The guitar is licensed for Guitar Hero only and will only work with that game, Rack Band fans are out of luck.

Kitty rocks Guitar Hero

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on April 28th, 2009

First off this guy looks a lot like Jack Osbourne. Secondly, this adorable kitty either really loves or really hates Guitar Hero. You’ll die of cuteness overload as he climbs up on this guy’s shoulder and steals the limelight. It’s unclear if he wants the music to stop or if he is just trying to rock out. Either way is fine with us.

He basically puts this dude in his place and shows the world who the real front man is. I think the kitty must enjoy it because near the end the little guy gets so relaxed on the guitar he basically falls off.

Backstage with Guitar Hero launches on PS Home

Posted in Games by Shane McGlaun on March 26th, 2009

guitarheromobile-sbI am a big fan of video games and play both console and PC games. One of the coolest games for consoles so far has been Guitar Hero. Music games are huge right now and are helping bands and record labels sell tunes at a time when record sales are dropping.

Sony’s PlayStation Home was announced a long time ago and was ultimately delayed repeatedly before it finally launched last year. Part of PS Home is different realms that are branded with different games where fans can meet up. Activision has announced that the Guitar Hero Backstage area has now opened.

Zivix Headliner Guitar for Rock Band/Guitar HeroThe problem with Guitar Hero and Rock Band is that people think they can actually play guitar. By people, I mean you. The Zivix Headliner is a real guitar that works with both games using special fingertip sensors. What this means for you?
