Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker

Here’s something that Guitar Hero fans may find of interest. Revealed at CES, the new Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker (from Jada Toys) aims to deliver the fun of Guitar Hero outside of the console environment.

Designed simply as a combination guitar pick, belt buckle, portable amp and an Air Cartridge that contains 10 guitar riffs ranging in skill level from 1-5. Players need only to strum across the belt buckle as they attempt to master each of the included air tunes. The device can also be attached to external speakers (if the portable amp just ‘aint loud ’nuff).

Included on the Air Cartridge are riffs from  Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man,” Deep Purple’s “Smoke on the Water,” Motorhead’s “Ace of Spades,” Van Halen’s “You Really Got Me”, Boston’s “More Than a Feeling,” and five original Air Guitar Rocker freestyle riffs. Jada also plans to release new belt buckles and Air Cartridges in the future.

The Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker is set to hit retail shelves in March and should be priced in the range of $29.99.
