The Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1

The Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1

The invention of the iPhone, the iPad and all the applications in between is an incredible technological feat. I remember friends (who were much more technologically advanced than myself, as I simply texted and made calls with my flip-phone) focusing particularly on musical apps. With one app, you could blow into the speaker like a flute and a fairyland melody resulted. Then actual iPhone bands started, everyone playing a different “instrument” on a tiny screen.


Fine Living Lancaster magazine would like to introduce to you the Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1, a long 24″ x 4″ plastic device that you can hold on your lap to play like a piano or strum in your lap like a guitar. It comes with two speakers, different “modes” or instruments, a bridge (for strumming, picking, tapping, etc.), 6 digital “strings” and 12 “frets,” a rechargeable battery, and even a power input. In order to customize your Artiphon, an application will be made available. “Want to strum a piano? Bow a banjo? Pluck a drum? Done.”


Presented in three different colors, the Artiphon starts at just $349 on KickStarter. Get ready for hours of endless entertainment! The instrument proves to be great for all ages, whether someone is experienced or has no experience playing an instrument.
