HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE Review: Beamz C4 Interactive Music System

The new Beamz Player is the perfect gift for the entire family at only $199.95. This is no ordinary toy, instrument, game or gadget. The Beamz Player provides an extraordinary music-making experience. Using laser beam technology, the Beamz connects to your PC via a USB hub and allows you to begin making music without having to know how to read music. It 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.

For the teens and tweens who love their iPod and GuitarHero, the Beamz Player is a whole new way to immerse yourself in music. The Beamz Player features a music library of songs to add to the 50 songs that come with the system. This library encompasses music that appeals to all ages and includes three types of interactive songs: original songs, top-hit jam songs, and video jam songs.
The Beamz Player is now being sold at FAO Schwarz, selected Brookstone locations, and

The Beamz was created to provide anyone an extraordinary experience making music by touching laser beams and playing light.  The Beamz song library encompasses music to appeal to all ages and includes three types of interactive songs:

Beamz Original songs

These are original songs created by Beamz composers with contributions from independent artists.  These are great songs for users to explore a wide range of music genres and hundreds of different instruments and sound effects within these original works.  These songs provide users ultimate creative expression opportunities.

Beamz “Top-Hit” Jam songs

These are interactive versions of popular songs composed in the style of the original artist. Songs include rock classics, party favorites and recent top-hits (e.g. Coldplay, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Michael Jackson, The Eagles, The Beatles, The Black Eyed Peas, etc). Interacting with these songs is like being the band and playing your own version of the popular song based on how you choose to play the laser beams within each song.

Beamz Video Jam songs

These are interactive versions of popular songs using the original artist recording and music video (e.g. Alpha Rev, Aly & AJ, Billy Idol, Blind Melon, Moby, etc).  Interacting with these songs is like “joining the band” – playing along with the original song and adding harmonious instruments and sound effects into the playback of the music video.  Disney and EMI are license partners with Beamz Interactive, and the company is in dialogue to expand its video jam song library with artists from other leading music industry publishers.

The Beamz Player includes 50 songs and users may add to their song library at Beamz Original and Top-Hit Jam Songs are just $2.99 each and Video Jam Songs are $3.99 each. 

The Beamz Player is an awesome way to spend your afternoon.  I will warn you, it's totally addicting!  What I love most about this product is that it allows you to express your own creativity, which is a great outlet.  The past couple of times I have felt stressed out, I stop what I'm doing and turn on the Beamz Player.  Instantly, I am in a better mood because I get to focus my energy on something I enjoy.   Music has a soothing effect naturally and the Beamz Player amplifies it.  I highly, highly recommend this for both kids and adults.  It would make the perfect gift for the entire family!
