The Coltar

The Coltar  (or Colour-Guitar for those of you not as cool!) looks like a fantastic little project.

YouTube user Philipp Lenssen has put together a nifty little guitar that gets its cues from a coloured fingerboard and a colour sensor.  Place the sensor over a different colour and get a different note - simple but effective.

What makes it stand out over similar projects (like my very own sequencer) is that a button on the side changes the chord that the colours relate to.  This allows him to create songs by following a set chord progression.

I can't wait for NXT to get an upgraded sound engine to support multi-tracking... Overlapping sounds and chords, that whould be awesome!
Vision an graphics isn't everything :)
