Gibson Releases Robot Guitar


Posted November 12, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

Our robotic overlords have their quirks--the way their heads explode when Captain Kirk confuses their logic, the fact that they've enslaved all mankind to work in their outer space diamond mines, etc.--but it's all forgotten when the robots rock out.

So we're happy that Gibson is releasing a robotic, self tuning guitar. It will be available December 7, and will allow for single touch "standard" tuning as well as allowing for six common altered tunings.

In honor of robots rocking out, TheFeed is proud to present our incomplete list of robots who rock out. It's under the jump. Feel free to add any we forgot in our comment section.

  • Evil Bill and Ted from Bill and Ted 2.
  • Chuck E. Cheese and his Pizzatime Players
  • Country Bear Jamboree
  • Herbie Handcock's "Rock it" video
  • Kraftwerk
  • Daft Punk
  • Countless artsy "industrial" band videos from the early 90s.
  • Edgar from Electric Dreams.
  • Hal from 2001 singing "Bicycle Built For Two"
  • Dr. Avalanche, the Sisters of Mercy's drum machine
  • Robotic Lincoln from Be Be's kids
