8butguitar sg VIDEO: The Guitar That Sounded Like Old Video Games

Once upon a time there was kid named Mike Davenport who built a guitar from an arcade machine that sounded just like old school 8-bit video games.  No information on how he actually did it, but the video heading reads:

“the result of my senior project. part arcade machine, part guitar. it’s powered by an fpga, and the strings are membrane potentiometers

Not sure what that last part meant, but the other stuff sounds cool. Who couldn’t go for a Metroid version of “Private Eyes” by [lastfm]Hall & Oates[/lastfm]? Click more to see the 8-bit axe in action.Vodpod videos no longer available.
