Submission + - Misa Digital Guitar Runs On Linux

conner_bw writes: "Imagine strumming to a guitar without any strings, on a touchscreen. Think the idea is too far fetched? Misa digital guitar claims to be just this. Working over the natural limitations of a traditional guitar, this new instrument eliminates the need to pluck strings while using the right hand to control sound. My favourite parts of the site are the Specs (Linux kernel 2.6.31 (Gentoo); 24 frets; touchscreen; MIDI out; Ethernet) the FAQ (How do you SSH into the guitar?), and this quote from the developer: Because the software is open source I'm hoping people completely change the instrument and share new "firmware" with others. Different graphics, different control ideas etc. It would all be free of charge. So I'm hoping that happens as the instrument becomes more familiar."
