They forgot something

about air guitar

Scientists announced Monday that they have developed a high-tech T-shirt that turns the strumming of an air guitar into music.

The T-shirt has motion sensors built into its elbows that pick up the wearer’s arm motions and relay them wirelessly to a computer which interprets them as guitar riffs, said Richard Helmer, an engineer who leads the research team from the government’s Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization.

It seems to me that, just like a guitar, this shirt is an instrument.  And just like a guitar, when you play “air guitar” with an instrument, it no longer becomes air guitar.

Cool invention though.  I want one.
