Pix & Stix

A touch closer to the real thing

The GarageBand app for the iPad 2 showcases the power of Apple’s darling of gadgetdom like few other apps. No matter how visually pleasing, or “delightful” the UI is, though, tapping out beats or virtual picking still just doesn’t feel right to practiced musicians. That’s where Pix and Stixs ($16) can help. Each pack includes two drum sticks and one guitar pick coated with electroconductive rubber tips, which allow either accessory to work on touch screens. Clearly it still can’t compare to the real deal, but they’ll definitely make jamming out on a tablet feel slightly more natural and at least spare your screen from an onslaught of finger smudges. Next stop, piano key ties?
