Rock Band, GuitarHero, Band Hero...one of the biggest trends over the past half decade is that consumers love gadgets that simulate the "rock star" experience. Enter Paper Jamz.
This line of musical gadgets hit the scene this week at the Toyfair convention in New York, and it allows even the most tone-deaf consumers to rock out to their hearts' content.The instruments contain an "electronic paper" of sorts, which allows users to simply touch the device to produce a sound. The devices are also slim and stylish, turning couch potatoes into make-believe rockers.
The guitar and drum each have 3 included tunes that can be played automatically (like a player piano). Users can also adjust the rhythm dynamically while the songs or playing, or they can ditch the pre-installed stuff altogether and just play in "Freestyle" mode.
There's also a karaoke device for players to belt out their inner Billy Joel (or whoever your singer of preference happens to be).
At around $25 each, these toys are a highly affordable option to enter the musicgadget craze.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
