Jack Wi-Fi Guitar Cable Launches via Kickstarter

A innovative new device which allows guitarists to jam wirelessly via connection to PC, Tablet or Smartphone is currently being crowd funded via Kick Starter.

Jack is the first guitar device to stream over Wi-Fi, simply plug Jack into any guitar, amp or pedal and instantly play wireless and stream uncompressed professional grade real time audio between instruments, amps and devices.

Designed by new Scottish technology company, Ingenious Audio in collaboration with Glasgow University, Jack, as the company claims marks "biggest change to home music recording in 50 years".

Ingenious Audio says (via MusicRadar):

"JACK is the missing link for modern guitarist – everyone today expects anything they buy to be wireless and connectable, whether it's a camera, phone, media player and they do all their recording, editing and sharing on PCs and phones. JACK bridges that gap. JACK provides studio quality uncompressed 24 bit real time audio. Wireless guitar kits exist today, but to date none have been able to use the high data rate Wi-Fi system. Using Wi-Fi means JACK can connect to the five billion Wi-Fi enabled devices out there."
