Designer Roger Linn, unveils his LinnStrument Multitouch Music Instrument Concept via video in hopes of attracting investors. Roger Linn’s prototype consists of a multi-touch, pressure-sensitive, high-resolution USB touch surface from a company called TouchCo which was shutdown by amazon earlier this year. This design uses a fingerboard grid consisting of 6 rows of 24 semitones each, similar to a guitar. It also has two thumb control strips, one on each side of the fingerboard, to be used for sustaining fingered notes after release, strumming, bowing, blowing or restriking, and also has a wind sensor for added expression.
There is no word if it will ever go into production, and if it ever does how much would it cost?
