Musicians who think that string instruments could use a modern touch should definitely check out the Jamstik Wireless Smart Guitar that’s available via Walyou Deals at a special price.
Made by Zivix, an American start-up based in Golden Valley, MN, the Jamstik Wireless Smart Guitar can function like a conventional guitar, enabling you to apply vibrato, bend strings, or even fingerpick. However, should you decide that the classical guitar sound is a bit too bland for your or your band, you can easily connect this device with Apple music apps and software.
Two of the main advantages of the Jamstik are its light weight and small dimensions. At 16.4″L x 3.5″W x 1.8″D and 1 lb, 9 oz in weight, the smart guitar is an instrument you can take with you anywhare. The 3.6v Lithium replaceable and rechargeable battery also contributes to the device’s portability, since it allows you to play anywhere for up to 8 hours.
Setting up the Jamstik isn’t difficult at all, as it doesn’t require any tuning. Combine that with its extreme portability and you’ll realize just how convenient this smart guitar really is.
Jamstik comes with some quality teaching software that was also developed by its creators. This means that it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a guitar player who has been familiar with string instruments for decades. All-level guitar players of all ages could learn to have fun with it.
Infrared light technology enables guitar players to see their hands while using the Jamstik. That will lead to better coordination in the future, not to mention the cool effect.
As far as compatibility is concerned, the Jamstik can be paired with Apple devices running iOS 7.0 or later (iPad 2 or later, iPhone 4S or later, iPod Touch 5th Gen or later), or Mac OS X 10.6 or later.
The package includes the Jamstik itself, an USB charging cable, an adjustable guitar strap, a rechargeable battery, 2 guitar picks and 3 downloadable iOS apps, specifically jamStik Connect, jamTutor & jamMix. The following video should give you a pretty good idea about how the Jamstik and the companion software look and work in real life.
Besides JamTutor and JamMix, the smart guitar is available with literally hundres of iOS MIDI-capable apps such as GarageBand, which is Apple’s flagship music production app.
If you decide to buy yourself a Jamstik Wireless Smart Guitar within the next four days, Walyou Deals offers it for $149.99, which is 40% of the original price. Referring a friend can get you $10, so that will lower the price even more. The product benefits from free shipping in continental US.

Every breath you take, every move you make, the Juvo sleep tracker will be watching you. With its unprecedented accuracy and smart home integration, this device takes sleep monitoring to a whole new level.
Juvo Labs, the Singapore-based company behind this sleep tracker, figured out that relying just on accelerometers to track sleep patterns simply won’t do it. According to its makers, Juvo is so accurate that it can track even your slightest movements 100 times a second. Since it needs to be placed under the mattress, it’s a lot more convenient to use than wrist-worn sleep monitors.
“The sensor technology is fiber optic,” explained company founder Toi Ngee in an interview with Gizmag. “So there’s a LED in the bedside unit that emits normal light that passes through the cable to the sensor under the mat. We then measure the amount of light lost within the mat a hundred times a second to extract out vitals such as movement, breathing etc. Therefore, there’s absolutely no radiation and even electricity from the sensor under the mat.”
The tracker even comes with a white noise machine that makes sure that you fall asleep quickly. Juvo really turns sleeping into a whole new experience, as it makes use of smart lights to wake you up when you’re rested. On top of that, it can be integrated with smart home devices such as Nest thermostats.
As mentioned before, Juvo Labs thought that for a precise sleep tracker, three-way accelerometers simply won’t do. More modern sleep monitors also include heartbeat monitors and skin temperature sensors, but that requires you to wear them around your wrist, fact that makes them uncomfortable during the night. Smart home integration and a entire host of sensors take Juvo to a new level, not to mention that its makers have also developed a software layer for data analysis.
The companion app collects the data recorded by the sensors and provides tips on how to make your sleep even better. Some of the advices you might get include “You achieve deep sleep fastest when your room temperature is set to 74° F (23° C)” or “You are typically in light sleep at 7 am, consider setting your alarm around that time.” That’s definitely something you don’t see when using sleep trackers developed by other companies. It’s not a mistake to consider the companion app one of Juvo’s most important selling points.
Juvo is currently featured on Indiegogo, where its creators are trying to raise $50,000 within the next 37 days, so that the sleep tracker makes it to mass production. Early birds can get it for as little as $149, while regular backers will have to pledge $159 or more to get their Juvo sleep tracker in April 2016. Various bundles are availables, including a distributor pack with 50 monitors selling for $6,000, in case you want to make sure that the entire neighborhood sleeps well.
