Harmonix has joined the recent trend of developers creating apps for iOS devices with its release of VidRhythm. By using the cameras and microphones of either an iPad 2, iPhone, or iPod Touch (4th generation), users can record their own video and sound to remix into 20 songs included with the application. Videos can then be shared on YouTube or Facebook to show the world your ridiculous creations.
VidRhythm is priced at $1.99 and is available for download now on the iTunes App Store. I've attached a video created by the folks over at Penny Arcade using the application.
