CES 2008: Gibson Marries a Guitar and a Robot

…and naturally comes out with a robot guitar that does something useful for us humans – tunes itself. World renowned guitar maker, Gibson, recently introduced this new monster, and it was a hit at CES this year. It seems simple enough. Just watch the first 20 seconds of the video below to see what I mean. However, read a bit more on their website (btw, they went all out and produce a really nice site) and you’ll soon discover that there’s quite a bit that goes into ensuring that this whole self-tuning thing works.

If you want one of these, you’ll probably have to jump, as they’re only planning a limited run of these, with stores only getting 10 units. There are some e-tailers that will be getting some in stock as well starting in a few days. Don’t worry, I’m sure that if this takes off, and I don’t see why it won’t, self-tuning guitars will become common.
