Gibson's Self-Tuning Guitar

Technology Review: Gibson's Self-Tuning Guitar

Here's more crap to make being a musician less of an achievement: a guitar that tunes itself. Not that any of the current crop of "instrument owners" (sorry, I can't bring myself to say, "musicians") would know the difference between B and C-flat, anyway. That's a trick question, in case you don't know.

The thing I don't get is: How does this self-monitoring perfect pitch bitch know when the player is bending the string? Playing with a slide? Has detuned? Is using alternate tuning? And on...

In case this thing is for real and not a hoax, I want to see one, just to watch it chase its tail.

Thx to Dominic for the heads-up on this. He doesn't need one, by the way.
