Gadget of the week - Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt (£18)

Take one part band T-shirt, two parts Rock Band, add a splash of air guitar and you get this, an electric guitar housed in the cotton confines of a T-shirt. There's a mini amp attached to the hem and once it's turned on, all the sartorial strummer needs to do is hit the buttons on the neck – each represents a major chord. They're all recorded from a real electric guitar, and by using the magnetic pick that the shirt comes with you can try playing your favourite rock anthems, or creating something new. No need to ask how loud the amp goes up to (11, duh) but rest assured – the electrical components can be removed so you can wash the T-shirt between gigs. Phew. Thinkgeek.com
