So, in what way are they going to brighten your day?

Apple event on the 10th is for real. What do you think? Different iPhone colours? I hope that’s not all.


Pocket Talkbox for iPhone arrives

Not sure what to make of this. Here’s the description:

Turn your phone into a musical instrument from the future! Make the synth ‘talk’ just by holding the speaker to your mouth while you play. Shape the sound with your mouth!

Now you can sound like Daft Punk, Stevie Wonder, Frampton and Zapp! The interface is simple enough for anyone to pick up and play, and intuitive enough for a true funk master to get down on. Remember, all musical instruments take some practice. Have fun!

*Note- this app is available for iPad, but for playability, it is recommended for the iPhone.

It’s priced at $0.99.
