A guitar with lasers? It sounds like something out of a science fiction movie, but this M3i Technologies guitar really uses lasers to better read a player’s finger movements.
The M3i Technologies Laser Pitch Detection Guitar comes equipped with lasers on the bridge and across each fret. When your finger passes through the light, the system in the guitar takes note of the laser beam’s length and calculates the string’s pitch, creating a sound for you.
M3i Technologies claims that this will offer guitar players an enhanced precision in their playing. The product won’t be available for retail until next year, so we’ll have to wait until then to see how playing it feels. At the very least though, it definitely looks cool.
