BREAKING NEWS: Guitar players rendered obsolete!

All human guitar players will soon be replaced with infinitely superior mechanical models.

the only thing that it might make obsolete is the fookin' fury (it has more feel than he does).

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Guitar players rendered obsolete!

Pffttt, I will believe it when I see and hear it with my own eyes and ears thanks, lol. "Plucking" as they call it is all very well and good. But what about banging-out some lightning fast Slayer riffs? Or some Yngwie leads? lol, I doubt it very much. Let me see it play Raining Blood or Dittohead all the way through, and then I will be fascinated.

I doubt it will render us obsolete though, no matter how good the thing played, it cant stand up on a stage and show emotion can it. It cant actually put on a show. Lets see it on stage......head banging away......I think not.

Yeah, dedicating one's self to something that could benefit mankind would have been a total waste of time, energy, and love. I too am thankful that humans spend billions of dollars each year on useless garbage. They'll be selling these things on 2 am tv... "Set it, and forget it!!"

Amen.

Jeez, lots of classy responses. If you read the explanation on the website, it says this was a graduate project for a mechatronics class at Georgia Tech. Personally, I think it's pretty cool.

Sorry, forgot to bring my top hat to the tea party!!

~insert English accent~

Yes yes, much praise to those all involved in constructing such a fine masterpiece in human craftsmanship indeed!!

Tis a shame they won't be constructing billions of these works of art for the starving children in Africa!!

Hey the fingering part not only plays guitar, but can double as a fantastic arm massager!

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Guitar players rendered obsolete!

I was just thinking of trying to create something like this. They have piano rolls, so why not a self-playing guitar?

They need to get something softer to play the strings with though, then it should sound a whole lot better!

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Guitar players rendered obsolete!

I heard the thing before I saw it (wife likes looking at new gizmos). I thought it sounded harpsichordy. Then I saw the plucking mechanism - it IS almost a harpsichord.
