This will go down in history as one of those greatest inventions of all times.. Along with Sauna Belt, The Segway, Nike Shox, Umbrella Hat and Survivor - the videogame. heh

Those things have been around in one form or another for quite a few years.

This - on the other hand, is intriguing:

Might be neat to try out on the next guitar I build...

Actually, I might need something like that robot tuner - using my pitch pipe makes me dizzy. abduction

That's silly. what about intonation? Thats why most gtr's sound bad.
Not to mention an unwound G string can never be tuned to perfect pitch

Another useless toy

Well, and the fact that a guitar can never really be in tune with itself in the first place.

You can just look at that thing and see that it's not gonna work. jkthtyrt

This, on the other other hand, looks like an interesting use of the concept.
