Beamz Interactive Music System hands-on

Here we have pics for you of "ShadowBeamz", a new game for the Beamz Interactive Music System described as a dynamic, fun, free-flowing musical instrument that anyone can play.

The Beamz, which cost $200 and hooks up to a PC via USB is an "interactive musical instrument for the whole family". The instrument consists of a base and w-shaped stand containing six red lasers.

By passing your hands through the laser beams, you trigger streams of musical notes to play with the programmed song tracks you select. Each beam controls a different, pre-programmed instrument, rhythm or sound, which works harmoniously with any of the pre-selected songs.

ShadowBeamz, available as a free download, adds music gaming to the system.
