Seeing the Hyper Touch really makes us proud. Since electric guitars haven’t changed much design-wise for the better part of half a century, this concept from Max Battaglia couldn’t have come sooner. The guitar world needs to be shaken and the Hyper Touch will do this—if it ever enters production.
It has a sleek exterior, the magic of the Hyper Touch is its wireless/stringless neck and fretboard. Instead of the usual steel strings, the Hyper Touch has a multi touch screen that has a whole bunch of modular features. This means the player can adjust the guitar according to his/her own specifications.
According to Yanko Design, the Hyper Touch stands apart from the rest by virtue of its innovative spin on the age old six string:
From the mind of Max Battaglia at Givingshape Design Studio, this unorthodox design replaces strings with a multi-touch screen, allowing the user to adjust the number of “strings” and frets, as well as tuning and sound effects. A wireless command center that permits endless customization and infinite possibilities of expression.
