Retro Pac-Man guitar for the arcade rocker

Retro Pac-Man guitar

If you could get your hands on this sweet guitar, you could really jam out a great version of “Pac-Man Fever”. It was designed by Specimen Custom Guitars and it not only looks retro-cool, but it also has some cool features. Like the blinking headstock and a variable-speed knob located on the eyeball that can synchronize the blinker to the beat.

Sadly you or I will never EVER get to touch it as it is one of a kind, but it does make our inner geeks very happy in a dot-munching sort of way. Come to think of it, it looks more like a Pac-Banjo then a guitar, but I still want it.

Yamaha Disklavier player piano lets you stream music to it and play it livePlayer pianos aren’t the first things you think of when you consider Internet enabled devices. Yamaha is betting you’ll soon consider its Yamaha Disklavier line of pianos though as cutting edge music technology.

The Yamaha Disklavier pianos can now work with a Yamaha service called DisklavierRadio, which lets you stream music directly to the piano for it to play live. This MIDI music is accompanied by specially recorded ensemble parts and lets one choose from a variety of music stations including Broadway, jazz and piano solos. Music can also be downloaded to the piano’s built-in 80GB hard drive for later playback.
