Guitars and Lasers!

If cinema has taught me anything (and I think has) it's that music, especially rock and roll, can change the world for the better. Unfortunately, for everyone who hasn't had the patience to take lessons, guitar isn't something you pick up in an hour or two. It takes time and a lot of dedication.

However, designer Eugene Cheong may have a solution to avoiding too much time and dedication. His latest invention, the Maestro, is an attachment that can teach you what frets to play to become a halfway decent player. Now here is the good bit, the device can accept MP3 files via SD card, which it then displays on the guitar frets via lasers. Just strum away as you see the beams lighting up your fretboard and "learn" your favourite songs.
