It was 1992. My head hung low as I paced through the black-brick hallways of a backstage area in some part of northern Europe. I had just failed to qualify for the 1994 Air-Guitar Olympics, to be held in Stockholm, Norway.
I swore, on that day, that I would become the greatest Air-Guitarist of them all.
I quickly realized, that in order to practice my moves, and make them authentic, I would need to use a real guitar, but the strings hurt my fingies.
I decided to wait until technology was available to make my air-guitar moves actually make sound. Recently, Pose Estimation technology was unearthed from the ancient ruins of Mesopotamia, and I had my opportunity.
I used this magical witchcraft to form an A.I. Air Guitar that anyone could play: myself included.
