A guitar prototype that teaches you to play guitar through LED lights on the frets is just one of the ideas the smart folk at iAccelerate have come up with recently.

A number of other cool projects will also be on show on Friday when the business incubator opens its doors to the community.

The iAccelerate Demo Day runs from 10am to 3pm at the UOW Innovation Campus in Squires Way, North Wollongong. The free event is part of the Wollongong Fringe Festival.

It includes a series of demonstrations including a fully interactive smart guitar that teaches guitarists at any level through LED lights, a Formula One racing simulator, a social well-being program for seniors and a new device that aims to reduce the time between a motor vehicle accident and emergency service response.
