When I fly into or out of Nashville, which is quite often, I always feel sorry for the musicians who have to lug their guitars on board.

Fredrick Johansson, a commercial pilot and picker, didn't like it either, so he invented a foldable guitar. I looks great. Made from mahogany and aircraft quality aluminum. It folds into a backpack in just 20 seconds. $3,370.

Implications - As technology is making the lives of North Americans more leisurely, consumers have come to expect convenience as a major part of product design. Products, such as the electric guitar, are no longer sacred from the reinvention of designers who look to incorporate modern accessibilities to better user experiences.
