The old Chinese proverb, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime,” can also apply to the holiday gift-giving season. Instead of taking the easy way out with a gift certificate that your friend will use once, or buying candles or home decor that will fade with time, you can give your loved one a new skill that will bring them joy throughout the year. The Populele is the world’s first smart ukulele, and it teaches you how to play with a solid combination of craftsmanship, tech, and fun.

Populele puts a modern twist on the classic ukulele. Its LED fretboard shows you where to put your fingers as you play, or it lights up in response to sound for a fun visual experience as you strum. You can connect the Populele to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth and use the instrument’s free app to get real-time feedback on your progress with sound-responsive technology. The in-app tuner keeps your uke in key, and a chord dictionary and continuously updated song library will make you the star of your next jam session in no time.


The Populele is a fun, tech-forward gift for kids and adults alike, and right now you can get it for only $179.
