Turn your smartphone into a mini guitar and rock on

GS Technologies LLC | Feb. 23rd, 2018

The Problem
Playing guitar is fun. Carrying a guitar with you everywhere isn't. Due to its size and obtrusiveness it's impractical to play guitar while while traveling,
especially without disturbing your neighbors.

Teenage students and
urban professionals feel
this pain.
It's impossible to realistically play guitar on the
school bus or train to work due to the size of
the instrument and the noise annoyance to
other passengers.

There is no viable solution
on the market.
The closest attempt to a solution, the Jamstik,
falls short in solving this problem for consumers
because it positions itself as an at home
substitute for a guitar, and a cost prohibitive
one at that.

The Solution
With GuitarSim, users have a lightweight and powerful alternative to carrying around a guitar with them while they go about their daily lives.

GuitarSim is mobile, and
GuitarSim is a bluetooth enabled smartphone
accessory that a user clips their iOS or
Android device into to become a fullfeatured miniature guitar.

The Opportunity: Rather than mindlessly
pressing buttons, you're learning actual
guitar skills on the go. V2 will include
similar play-along capability.





Strength: Professional MIDI sound creation
with a variety of instruments
Weakness: No real feel at all. Sounds are
generated via touchscreen taps

accessory that provides vital tactile
feedback and more nuanced control during
