The official description: The Reactable, is a multi-user electronic music instrument with a tabletop tangible user interface. Several simultaneous performers share complete control over the instrument by moving physical objects on a luminous table surface. By moving and relating these objects, representing components of a classic modular synthesizer, users can create complex and dynamic sonic topologies, with generators, filters and modulators, in a kind of tangible modular synthesizer or graspable flow-controlled programming language.This instrument is being developed by a team of digital luthiers at the Music Technology Group within the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain.
I’ve always liked experts in their field, any field. I also like experts who can fuse together dissimilar styles and techniques. I don’t know who this guy is, but he’s good. It’s almost like he’s playing a lead guitar riff on a fiddle.
This is Vanessa Mae. She’s showy, but she has the chops to back it up. Besides, it’s terrifically fun!
And to round this out, here is 7 year old Laura Watson playing her fiddle. She is still actively playing and has 2 CDs to her credit! She’s seriously cute.
The Night Before Christmas.
Last year she says she received healing at a Christian conference and within hours she was able to fold away her wheelchair and stop taking painkillers.
When Mrs Clarke realised she was completely healed she contacted the government Industrial Injury Department to put a stop to the benefits she had been receiving, but the payments continued. Mr and Mrs Clarke sent letters and made phone calls, but officials told them the system was unable to recognise an apparently miraculous recovery.
Mrs Clarke had been awarded an allowance for life and the computer was not programmed to allow that payment to end while she was still alive. After six months, she saw an official government doctor who registered her as fully fit. The allowance was stopped and Mrs Clarke was able to repay the money.
A spokesperson from the Department for Work and Pensions said: "Each case is treated individually."
The vehicle architecture offers an attractive rethink for car design and adds greatly to overall vehicle safety including structural integration of the door with the unibody and cruciform door frame technology.
One thing is for sure, it will definitely grab everyone’s attention when you drive a car with Disappearing Doors!

Gibson Proudly Presents The Robot Guitar—A First Run Limited Edition
On December 7, 2007, Gibson will change the guitar world forever. Again.
True to the spirit of innovation that inspired Gibson to invent the legendary Tune-o-matic bridge, the powerful humbucker, and the revolutionary Digital Les Paul, Gibson proudly presents the Gibson Robot Guitar—the world's first guitar with robotic technology.
Since the dawn of the instrument, musicians have come to accept the guitar's imperfections and lack of tonal precision as necessary evils. Onstage and off, guitarists have fought to stay in tune. Every music lover and performer has had to suffer through the show—halting, mood-killing atonal droning of a loudly amped guitar being brought into tune. And in the studio, or at home, imprecise intonation throws the guitar in and out of tune, up and down the neck, as the instrument requires tweaking with each season and at times with each string change.
For as long as the guitar has existed, guitar lovers have had two choices—live with a temperamental and out-of-tune instrument or make frequent trips to the shop for setups. Not anymore.
Introducing the Gibson Robot Guitar. All you have to do is play it.
