AirTurn Bluetooth BT-105
AirTurn is introducing a first look at its prototype Bluetooth BT-105 page turner footswitch for the iPad and other Bluetooth-equipped computers.
While the iPad is a terrific tool for reading digital sheet music, its functionality is actually hampered by the need to touch or swipe the screen to turn pages, AirTurn says.
For musicians who need both hands to play their instruments, removing a hand to momentarily touch the screen for page turns can be distracting at best and disruptive to the music at worst.
The AirTurn BT-105 automatic page turner footswitch is being designed for musicians who need to turn sheet music pages hands free. The AirTurn BT-105 connects wirelessly to an iPad or other Bluetooth-equipped computer and is triggered by foot switches to turn pages forwards and backwards. Some apps and programs that feature half page zoomed views of the music will also feature the ability to turn pages with the Bluetooth AirTurn half a page at a time. The final version of the AirTurn BT-105 will be miniaturized.
The AirTurn BT-105 is expected to be available Q4 2010.
