AC Symphony is a instrument, design and performed by Danne Woo, that allows the musician to play AC powered appliances. The control center is an AC sequencer that plays all the appliances in sequence. You can change the speed, pause, reset, harmonize and control the amount of voltage going to each appliance. Essentially its a power strip on steroids.
The Chameleon Guitar blends a traditional acoustic with digital capabilities. Developed at the MIT Media Labs by Amit Zoran this instrument combines a wooden resonator and a computer processor to create a wonderful new instrument. With the custom software create for this project the user can specify exactly how big they want the resonating chamber to be, thus creating a specific sound. The user can also easily switch out the wooden resonator with a different resonator made from another type of wood or other material. The possibilities really are endless.
