The Fingerist – turn your mobile phone into a lean, mean music machine


The Fingerist is a cute looking adapter for the iPhone which converts the handset into a musical instrument controller. Basically you get to look all rock and roll as you strum your guitar app, and because it’s also got an internal speaker you get to hear the sound with more unforgiving clarity than using the standard phone speaker.

The device can also be used as a standard audio speaker. Priced at $150.00, but there appears to be some production delays with the project at the moment.


 The Fingerist is a new style iPhone/iPod touch accessory that enables you to play your applications as if you are actually playing musical instruments. This music adapter has a built-in speaker that operates on 3 AA batteries which will enable you to perform 6-hour stage live.

  • Please don't say "your mobile phone" when you really mean "your iPhone".

    My mobile phone is an Android.

    • Point taken. Thx. :)

  • I thought I was cool with my Gibson 1959 VOS Les Paul slung round my neck, but I'd look all pipe and slippers next to this.

    • Heh, but Gibson is timeless awesome!

    • Yep… you're right – the Gibson it is then!
