RoboTar, a robotic chord hand for guitar players will launch a crowd funding campaign to raise money for manufacturing and distribution at the end of this month.
After Glenn "Dee" Krumwiede of Wisconsin suffered a severe stroke impacting his left side, his primary focus for recovery went toward fundamental activities like walking, but a very close second was playing guitar. While Dee regained some of his ability to walk, the fine motor skill, strength and dexterity required to play guitar did not follow.
Now with a broader potential market that includes new guitar learners, pros that want to master new skills like improvising while playing their own chords, music teachers, therapists and children, Krumwiede is preparing to make the device more widely available leveraging a crowd funding campaign like Kickstartr.com in May.
