Last time I was driving though Austin, Texas I stopped in to see our friends from ArcAttack. Joe was working on the next addition to their America’s Got Talent performance, a lightning proof MIDI guitar. When I left they were still trying to fit all the wiring under the fretboard but it was looking good.
You can learn more about how the MIDI guitar works over at Gizmodo: Building The World’s First Lightning-Proof MIDI Guitar.
But before you click over to Giz, check out this GeekDad exclusive of one of ArcAttack’s first practice sessions with the new guitar. Also, please watch them on AGT on August 24th and turn out the Geek vote!
