The first thing I love is the simplicity of the parts of the Guitar. The assembly of the plastic connector parts is easy and none of them have complex mechanisms. These parts are snap connectors. At times when complex systems and parts were needed in order for something to work, the designer decided to add more but still simple parts.
As the retail price for the game is low – $8.50, it seems like they chose easy assembly over minimal material.
The other thing I like are the silicon rubber conductive button pads. This is the first time I’ve seen such a thing. It’s form at different locations is what makes it fascinating! When pressing a long button – in this case – the Hero Power button, 3 button pads are used to make it work. Whereas, the tiny buttons like – the Pause button – only use 1 conductive button to complete the circuit.
