During the quiet times in U2-land, my friends and I start to ponder the “what if’s” to keep ourselves from going bonkers as we wait for something new. My husband stumbled upon this amazing guitar (or should I say guitars) and asked me if Edge would consider adding this to his fine collection. While scary to look at, it could serve a real purpose should Edge feel like experimenting with U2’s sound a bit more.
My friend, Phil, sent along this from Engadget where someone’s figured out how to rig their Nintendo Wii controller up to their *real* guitar to use “the acceleration data on the Wii controller and capturing movements of the instrument and translating that into different effects.” I think Edge could totally rig a Wii controller up to his space station and bring a whole new dimension to “The Fly” or anything off of Passengers for that matter!
Man, will the new material come already? I’m turning into a techno-geek without really trying!
