Laser-equipped electric guitar makes precision-playing easier

by Gavril Mankoo

If you’re one of those guitar-players who loves precision just as much as the music you play, here’s a guitar that might just interest your perfectionist self. It makes playing the guitar that much more fun. Using Laser Pitch Detection (LPD) technology, this guitar is capable of recording chords long before you strum the chord! Here’s how. Each string has its own laser beam extending across the frets that takes note of the laser- beam’s length and calculates the string’s pitch accordingly. And yes, this makes this guitar a pretty practical controller for guitar-based video games too, like say, Guitar Hero in the future! an interesting use of technology blended in with music, hardcore guitar players are sure to frown at this one though.
