Guitar Update Number Three

Well, it finally exists in a form that can be played. Sort of. Here is my guitar, working, with the following caveats:
  • Powered by a USB cable, not a 9V battery (battery was a bit flat)
  • Jack socket is connected by crocodile leads (need to drill a hole)
  • Only two strings (couldn't be bothered to string up the whole thing)
  • Most sensors still missing but it should be pretty easy to add them
    • Currently have six knobs and an infra-red sensor
    • Missing various push buttons, rocker switches, light sensor and accelerometer
    • Missing the "virtual strings" and fret sensors, which will require many extra weeks of thought
I feel I need to take a break from this time-sapping project for a while. But, in the meantime, enjoy:
