Taylor Sense is a smart battery box that connects your acoustic guitar to your smartphone. It can monitor humidity and temperature, and will notify you if it's ever dropped. Aerodrums is a virtual reality drum set that give you the freedom of learning or practicing drums in your house without annoying your neighbors. It uses Oculus Rift so you feel like you're sitting in front of a real drum set. Finally, GiardOk gives you the feeling of playing with the whole band, even if you're alone.
