Labana Technology shows FretX at Midem
When a specialist in the textile industry helps guitarists learn how to play, it’s everything we, at Audiofanzine, have to see and try…
Labana Technology indeed was at Midem last weekend in France to introduce FretX, their prototype of a new smart learning system for guitar.
FretX is an Arduino-based electronic device that fixes on the fretboard of any guitar and can recognize notes and chords and show them to the student with a LED lightning system so they can learn songs.
The system will be completed with a mobile app, it can also recognize the sound of another guitar played next to it, which makes it perfect for teachers.
FretX is still a prototype, its designers are planning on launching a crowfunding campaign at the end of the year and launch the product early 2016. Here’s the first video presentation, full details are expected soon at www.fretx.rocks.
