iPhone Guitar

Give a man a fish. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Give a man (or for that matter, hopefully many men) an open platform in touch-interactivity, however, and you’d start to get really interesting and creative applications – quite certainly more than you’ve ever envisioned yourself. In this case – it’s for the Apple iPhone. Previously some concepts like Starbucks coffee ordering sprang up on the net – while perhaps useful I didn’t think it was particularly creative in harnessing the iPhone’s capability.

This one, however, is pretty cool (and a ready app too – if you’ve not upgraded to the latest firmware):

While it’s still in a rather primitive state currently, it does show potential in really harnessing and leveraging on the iPhone’s touch-sensor capabilities. Imagine a guitar that fits in your pockets! Practise and pluck over with your earphones while you travel, to the accompanying MP3 tune on the phone! Too bad Apple’s still insisting on a closed platform.
