You’d better start saving now for your son or daughter’s future Instrument 1 lessons. What’s that? Fair question. It’s a new multi-instrument musical controller that lets you play the guitar, piano, drums and more on one device, with the promise of true pick-up-and-play ability.

The Artiphon Instrument 1 features six digital strings, 12 optional frets, a bridge for strumming, picking, and tapping, and all of it is pressure- and velocity-sensitive. It’s designed to be used in any of a number of positions, and it’s fully ambidextrous. There’s a built-in accelerometer, and the volume knob lets you scroll through sounds. The device is neither acoustic nor exactly quite electric, as it’s meant to work in concert with a wide array of music apps, and it works with any MIDI-compatible software. Early adopters on Kickstarter can get one for $299. [Purchase]
