Gigway Pen Reads and Plays Music So You Can Concentrate on Your Groupies

Everyone knows that your average rock star has to dedicate his or her time equally to two main things: the music; and their legions of adoring and slightly easy fans. Well, with the new Gigway pen, they’ll have more time to dedicate to the latter.

The ‘pen’ is actually not for writing at all, but rather scans and reads sheets music and then plays it back to you so that you know how its meant to be heard. No more wondering how that suspended ninth is supposed to sound! Just run the Gigway pen over the music and let it do its magic.

On top of this, the Gigway can play back sound through headphones or its set of included speakers in addition to having a metronome function for keeping time. Will wonders never cease.

Now all the world need is a pen that takes care of drug-addled antics and on-stage showmanship and rock stars and musicians the world over can finally concentrate on what’s important: getting photographed by paparazzi doing inappropriate things. Ah technology – helping us get our priorities straight for generations…
