Livid Instruments has been developing a wireless MIDI controller that's fits on to your guitar and wirelessly connects to your iOS device, software or MIDI hardware.

It was announced at the NAMM Show that they would be crowdfunding the project, and managed to reach their target of $45,000 after just 10 days of the campaign.

"It's the coolest gadget ever... Guitar Wing gives you the ability to control software while playing your guitar at the same time. You can interact as much or as little as you like", says Vernon Reid, Guitarist for Living Colour, who helped develop Guitar Wing.

GuitarWing attaches to any right-handed electric guitar or bass using a swivel mount, without the need to mod your instrument.

It's a class-compliant MIDI device and will work with almost any audio software. It will come included with the WingFX integrated effects plugin.
