The Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker uses patented technology consisting of guitar picks, a rockin' belt buckle and a portable, mini-amplifier. Users wave the guitar pick over the belt buckle sensor to determine the tempo of the song, which can be heard through the mini-amplifier. The product comes with a demo mode and an Air Cartridge that features ten signature guitar riffs, ranging in skill level from one to five, including epic hits. Launch date: May 6, 2008.
