You can rely on us at Sonicstate to bring you the latest musical inventions and it’s been a good week for it with the Cat Piano and the Guitar Bass – now we can break the news of the Guitar Phone.
Anyone who reads New Scientist magazine might be aware of Barry Fox and his unerring trawl through the world’s patent applications in his quest to make the latest bizarre ideas and inventions public knowledge. The latest discovery in his ‘Invention’ column is that you may soon be able to play ‘guitar’ on your phone.
Motorola is apparently patenting a cellphone that displays the layout of a guitar neck on its screen. The guitar can be ‘plucked’ or ‘strummed’ by using the keypad with the resultant guitar sounds being played through the phone’s speaker or sent across the ether to another phone user. Yep, they are really going to thank you for that…
