Linux Guitar, a rocking toy

May 10, 2010, 12:34 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to J00p34 for this link. ]

"If you are looking for a Linux toy that really rocks, your search ends here. This is a stringless digital guitar and it's powered by Linux

"This is what is called a "digital guitar" by it's designer. So it's not a electrical guitar but a device for creating digital music. The Misa guitar runs Gentoo Linux on an AMD Geode processor and it has MIDI and Ethernet ports for connectivity.

"The interface is a touchpad LCD screen with a 5 wire resistive touch sensor. As there's gentoo Linux on the device and there seem to be a lot of digital keys on the guitar I bet it can be hacked into many other things than a guitar alone. As Linux bases synthesizers are available it can probably be turned into a music studio that rocks in your hands."
