This Hybrid Guitar Hookup Lets You Shred and Type Simultaneously

This hybrid guitar is a godsend for everyone who wished that they could shred on a guitar while typing out their emails.

Creator David Neevel didn’t create the hybrid guitar for commercial purposes or to solve some long-standing need. Instead, he created the hybrid guitar for the same reason that Edmund Hillary climbed Mount Everest: because it was there. Either way, the hybrid guitar really works in that the strummer can play notes on the guitar, which are translated into keyboard inputs on a nearby computer.

Neevel actually has a history in creating silly devices that he acknowledges are just for goofy fun, such as his recent Oreo icing separator that utilized a hatchet. In fact, Neevel describes the hybrid guitar best when he states on his site that he is looking toward fixing "the problem of not being able to devote enough time practicing shredding the guitar. The solution of hooking a guitar up so that you could use it like a computer keyboard had been in my head for a few years and it was a real joy to get to follow through on it."
