MIT student Nan-wei Gong shows off her creation, a guitar with customizable controllers. The material she used is low-cost printed circuitry, the copper-colored material on the surface of the guitar. The covering lets people press the different buttons to control the sound effects for the guitar. It's an alternative interface to using a computer or a dedicated effects device and it gives musicians the ability to create "outfits" for different sound effects.
