Arduino Mod Lets Disabled Musicians Play Guitar

Posted on May 22, 2012 by Cooking Hacks There have been 0 comments

Justin’s Arduino-powered device, dubbed the Folkbox, has rows of buttons mounted beneath the neck of the guitar that play chords when depressed. The buttons are hooked up to solenoids that depress the proper strings, allowing the user to play a multitude of different chords.

The interface can be easily rebuilt to allow musicians with other disabilities to play as well. For example, someone who has no use of one hand can have a foot pedal array to play chords.
