iPhone comes alive!

Long before autotune was popularized in pop music, there was a phenomenon known as the talkbox. The talkbox helped guitar god Peter Frampton come alive. With the Wee-Wow for iPhone , you don’t have to be Frampton to get the same effect with your iPhone .

A talkbox is a unit consisting of a tube that goes into an effects box. You hold the tube between your lips and shape the sound with your mouth. It gives off a strange sound that is part robot, part alien. It’s pre-autotune at its finest.

Ridiculo.us is raising funds on Kickstarter for its Wee-Wow, an inexpensive iPhone talkbox. It consists of a little adapter to go on the bottom of the phone and a piece of tubing to route the sound from the phone’s speaker. Stick it in your mouth and you’re in business, though getting the most out of a talkbox requires a little practice. You’ll need to work on forming recognizable words.
