Intel Inside

A few days back there was discussion on the UMGF about a Martin Guitar prototype that had a slot for inserting a PDA. I wondered what use it was; to keep track of your set list, remind you what couch you were sleeping on, or what a Bm7 chord looks like?

Well today I stumble across The Surf Guiter a Fender Telecaster with a tablet PC embedded in the back. Seems that Intel and Fender actually got together and built this. It includes a Centrino processor and Ethernet connectivity.

I can't help but wonder what damage your belt-buckle could do to the screen

It's assumed that this is just a demo for use at trade shows and Fender won't actually be mass producing these, but you never know...
