The people at Jamboxx® reached out to us a few weeks back with this totally awesome musical instrument that anyone can play. You don't need your hands, all you need is your creativity! Jamboxx® allows you to play virtually any synthesized instrument completely hands-free or hand-held similar to a harmonica.
From the website:
Jamboxx was originally designed and developed by two friends: Dave and Mike. Dave, a quadriplegic - the result of a skiing accident, has very limited use of his hands, and for years used only a harmonica as his musical outlet. They sought a new instrument that would allow for Dave to be able to produce the sounds of electric guitar, trumpet and saxophone, and others. So they created Jamboxx, an affordable, completely digital controller that’s extremely easy to play.
Check out Jamboxx - there's a video, too!
Speaking of music, here's another fun story about a guy named Jason Gerling, a drummer living with quadriplegia. Read it here.
