Yeah well it's got -- excel or under it which senses playing motion either picking your strumming. -- after slow and that excel robber drives the bank of LED NS -- -- so that I -- router. Essentially that creates a link between the lights and the music that's being played. Which with. The nearly instantaneous response times means that it can kind of -- we -- you slow down your -- -- speed of -- the flashing light -- the rhythm of the music. Pretty smoothly. So how did you guys get the idea to make this -- Smart -- Well we were talking about how to make and LED guitar -- Kind of undertaken LED guitar -- idea and just make it blow minds we're just talking about it launch Monday and we found -- sensing -- like. -- -- and now and having had. You know finger can have that -- known -- thinking like flashing guitar plays that and we wanna take one step further you know have liked. No event and we guitar pick a flash is an instrument and we had a generic rechargeable lithium ion battery for -- to think -- -- -- -- -- It -- but I mean the core idea was that.

And the a prototype boards about one point five -- thicker than submit and -- third Boardman Andy. I have continued to have. Offers resting. Okay. What is the battery life. On the page along the battery lasts along with -- to charge you speak. Truth. The battery life is really dependent on you know how -- we have -- -- if there's you know if you do you know. 95% of the power and the plane you know and the plan. There's an you know like a lot of faster and they're meeting all faster mean currently -- now you can view the gate you know when -- throughout the way. Told the audience little bit about the kick starter now mind you guys right well you can finally kick starter. -- -- dot firefight -- dot com.
