Expressiv Is An Irish MIDI Guitar With Some Groovy Light Effects, Man

Hey, man, is that a MIDI guitar with amazing internal lighting effects? Well turn it up! Hot on the heels of the GTar and the Jamstik we present the Expressive, a guitar designed by Rob O’Reilly. The Kickstarter, which ends today, sold the guitars for about $450 and aims to ship in March. Does the world need another MIDI guitar? Sure. This model scans the fretboard to see where your fingers are and, like the GTar, it is a full-sized git-fiddle. It also has a set of infinity lights in the body so you can look like the ghost of Carlos Santana on stage. Most important, however, is that the Expressiv is a real electric guitar. Unlike some other systems, you actually have to tune this thing and you can plug it into your amp and play without depending on MIDI. The MIDI features are an added bonus, thereby expending your potential sound repertoire immensely. While it appears the Kickstarter is over, you can check out O’Reilly’s site here to get more details. I’d love to see this thing in action as I am a hoodoo man out-hoodooer and intend to go down to Louisiana, this guitar strapped to my back, to acquire a mojo hand. A guitar like this would surely allow me to out-hoodoo the Hoodoo Man. Article source:...

Applause Raises $765K From Salesforce CEO For Its Revamped Weight Loss App

If you’re worried about blowing your diet over the holidays – or perhaps, thinking about making a New Year’s resolution to “eat healthy” (you know, again) – an app called Applause, now seed funded by Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, may help. The startup aims to bring to market a more lightweight food and activity tracking service combined with virtual support groups that offer you feedback and encouragement from others like you. The app itself is not exactly new, however. According to co-founder and CEO Durga Pandey, he worked on it over the course of a couple of years before leaving for in early 2014  – which is how he ended up scoring the angel funding, as you may have guessed. Initially, he was bootstrapping the app, then called FitFrnd. But the original concept was something that was more akin to a “Facebook for fitness,’ including a variety of social features including friending, a news feed, likes and comments, plus other social mechanisms designed to help it go viral. What he found, however, is that people didn’t want to add their friends and family to witness their weight loss struggles – they wanted that to remain somewhat private. Pandey actually gave up on the app for a while as he worked at Salesforce, until he came up with a new idea: he could take the idea of Weight Watchers and its support groups, and put...
