The Air Guitar Move motion-sensing guitar pick lets you strum in the air, while your iPhone becomes a guitar with the help of two apps.

Playing air guitar to your favorite song just got a lot cooler. Two gadget-loving guys have come up with Air Guitar Move, a device that lets you strum the air using the iPhone or iPod Touch.

The entire set consists of two apps and a guitar pick with an accelerometer inside. The first app, called Free Play, lets you strum the air using the pick as you see fit. The second app, Arcade, is a rhythm action game that lets you strum along with songs, similar to games such as Rock Band and Guitar Hero.

Interestingly, former Guitar Hero engineers are overseeing production of the project. This means we might see more apps that are compatible with the Air Guitar Move in the future.

Although they have already raised enough funds for this project, you'll still be able to back them up financially on KickStarter should you wish to.

The guitar pick is expected to cost around $50. To get the limited-edition red aluminum version, you'll have to pledge $249 or more to the project. Let's hope we don't have to wait too long for these picks to hit retail.
