The BBC have an article on how Australian scientists have created a T-shirt that allows air guitarists to play real music - without resorting to a real guitar. The T-shirt has motion sensors built into its elbows that pick up movements and relay them wirelessly to a computer which interprets them as guitar riffs. One arm is interpreted as picking chords while the other strums. The "wearable instrument shirt" is adaptable to both right and left-handed would-be rock stars.
Check out the video from the BBC - definitely something for youth groups - you wouldn't have any storage problems!
