Email Typing Guitar: Rock and Roll All Night, and QWERTY Every Day

by Conner Flynn

When you work in an office, sending emails all day long can be tedious and boring. Sometimes, you just want to rock out and play your guitar. Well, now you can do both thanks to David Neevel’s email guitar.

Emails and memos are boring as hell. Get your typing done while shredding on your axe. Brilliant. The email guitar is a musical keyboard device that takes the boring out of the job and lets you type by hitting notes. Each guitar stroke translates into certain computer keyboard letters.

Of course Neevel had to attach several electronic components – including a MIDI translator, an Arduino, a number of relays and the USB interface from a keyboard – to the guitar to make it work and translate the feeds from the guitar to the computer. Thanks to all of the relays, it even sounds a bit like a mechanical keyboard.

I wonder what Smoke on the Water would type? It’s the only song I know how to play – and it sounds nothing like the song when I do.
