:: As a guitar player of some 37+ years, I was interested to see this news release about the new, Flying V NanoGuitar. It falls under the category of NEMS (Nanoelectromechanical Systems), which is two orders of magnitude smaller than MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems).
The original "nanoguitar", about the size of a blood cell, was developed in 1997.
I'm looking forward to the first CD release of nanoguitar music!
