If you’ve ever played those arcade games that require you to wave your hands over or under beam ports in order to match notes on a screen, then you’re already well on your way to learning how to play a Beamz guitar.

A Beamz guitar is a device that creates a tone whenever one of six laser beams are broken, basically by you waving your hand in the midst of the beam.  It may look like some kind of crazy high-tech laser harp, but when you hook it to your PC, you can play along with over a hundred different songs or go freestyle and create your own.

Beamz asserts that it’s easy enough for a beginner to play, but will provide a complex and challenging experience even for seasoned pros.  The Beamz guitar unit sells for right around two hundred dollars and can be purchased on the company’s web site.
