New Guitar Technology at CES 2008

Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2008, the largest trade-show for consumer technology, held every year at Las Vegas, Nevada.

I was checking out what are the new cool gadgets coming up this year on youtube, and found some quite cool stuff for guitars!

#1. Gibson Robot Guitar
The first one is Cool!!
Every electric guitar player should know Gibson Les Paul. Now the guitar just got better with robotics tuning your guitar automatically.

No more hassle of tuning the guitar. No more embarassment of strumming an out-of-tune guitar on stage.


#2. Guitar Wizard
The second one is Crap...
Basically it is like playing Dance Mat on your guitar, with coloured frets and lines marked with different shapes.

Kinda cool for some one who wanna try playing Dance Mat genre games on a different instrument. But I think it is crap because you can't learn guitar like that.. you have to learn where each note is, and not just learning the songs by heart..

#3. Guitar Hero- Air Guitar Rocker
The third one is Crappily COOL!!!
You have seen ppl swinging his hand around his crotch, acting as if he is slamming on his 'air' guitar. Well, it is a dream come true for them. with this device, you just have to strum with the magnetic pick above the belt buckle, and it will transmit signal to the amplifier to play the chord.

Pretty idiot-proof cos u dun even need to know the notes nor the chord to play a song on the guitar. But pretty crappy as well.. if u get wat i mean...

现在这些给大小孩玩的玩具真的是越变越夸张。
只要是你想得到的就会有人做得出给你。
像Nintendo Wii, 或上面的Air Guitar Rocker...
绝对不是80's 年代的小孩能想象的…
但不懂为什么当年的我们玩着任天堂Nintendo的'魂斗罗Contra', '超级玛丽Super Mario'就可以这样开心的玩上整个下午…
现在…每天只会嫌电脑慢…Graphic Card不够support新的game...
哎…想念当年的日子…天真…无知…单纯…

做么整天嫌电脑慢…Graphic Card不够support新的game………………

没什么…
会嫌Graphic Card不够support新的game,是因为我的电脑用的是integrated graphic card. 所以基本上新的电玩游戏全都不能support…
至于为何电脑这样慢,我已用下一个post告诉你…

不要玩 game 就行了 =)
