Beamz Interactive has announced a new player at the E3 Expo. This new and improved interactive music system features a sleek, smaller-footprint design with four laser beams that trigger up to 12 different instruments, music clips, sound effects, or vocals as you pass your hands through the beams.
Each beam controls a different pre-programmed instrument, rhythm or sound, so users can easily arrange and create their own music each time they play a song. The Beamz Player will be available for purchase at www.thebeamz.com beginning August 1, 2010 for $199.95. In addition, users may also purchase the new Beamz height adjustable stand, which provides an easy and convenient storage display option beginning August 1, 2010 for $49.95. And, Beamz is developing a software developer’s kit (available in Q3) so that software publishers may create gaming or any other applications to use the Beamz Player as a laser controller.
The Beamz Player system comes with 50 top-hit “jam” and original Beamz songs including 5 popular music videos for users to watch and play simultaneously, and the ShadowBeamz interactive game which allows users to sharpen their playing skills. The Beamz Player is ideal for everyone regardless of musical background from age 7 to 107, and kids even younger can have fun playing the Beamz with assistance because you can’t play a wrong note!
New Video Jam Songs The Beamz Player includes a whole new way to experience making music with the addition of 5 new video jam songs, which are interactive versions that use original master recordings and videos licensed from EMI Music. Beamz Interactive is also in dialogue with other labels and publishers to rapidly expand its video jam song library. Additional video jam songs will be available for purchase for $3.99 each from www.thebeamz.com beginning August 1, 2010. Interacting with video jam songs provides consumers a rich and unique music entertainment experience – this dynamic new content for the Beamz Player goes beyond traditional music gaming products.
