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

This - on the other hand, is intriguing:

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

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.
