Mantaray iTar Slaps iPad onto Charmless Keytar-Like 'Instrument'
VJ Franz K's creation, the Mantaray iTar, allows you to mount an iPad alongside smaller synth and effects units, like the Korg Kaoss pad. In concept, it takes the iPad from an over-sized iPod touch into a serious musical device. In practice, it kind of just functions like a keytar without any of the retro, ironic cool.
Franz K even plans to build and sell the iTar in limited quantities. The first one off the assembly line (or, his bedroom floor) is being offered for $225. Check out the video below to see the iTar in action. Bonus points if you can sit through the whole thing. [From: YouTube, via: Ubergizmo]
