In Back to the Future, Marty loved to play the guitar. I’m thinking if he ever asked Doc Brown to make him a musical instrument, it might have looked like this. Sure, he’d have to learn to play the bass, but I’m sure he’d be fine with that.
The brainchild of famed guitarist Steve Vai, the Hydra is a triple-neck steampunk-styled guitar that combines four different instruments: a fretless 12-string guitar, a half-fretless bass, a 7-string guitar, and a harp (seen at the bottom).
Xenomorphs: they’re just misunderstood aliens that want to rock out, not kill. Case in point: this small animatronic xenomorph built by Danny Huynh that jams out on guitar. Free Bird! Admittedly, I would still have a hard time feeling comfortable being a groupie.
The pinnacle of human achievement: we’ve finally reached it. What we have here is a never-ending bass solo generated by a recurrent neural network (RNN). It was trained on two hours of bass improvisation by musician Adam Neely.

You know what I love? Cool coffee mugs. You know what I hate? Cool coffee mugs that are ruined only by a square-shaped lip or other weird shape so that your drink all lands on your chest instead of in your mouth.
I’ve played a few instruments in my lifetime, but my stint playing the guitar was probably the shortest. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it, it’s that I just didn’t have the time to dedicate to going to class and learning it properly.
