From a 3D printed flute, to an instrument that is near and dear to my heart, the guitar. Designed on a computer by Bård S D, the printable electric guitar called the Zoybar Tor, was created using open source 3D modeling software. I just wished he would have modeled a black Flying V instead of something straight out of the cartoon Futurama.
But looks aren’t everything; the big question is how does it sound? As you can hear from the video, the guitar sounds absolutely brilliant albeit heavily distorted.
If you don’t have the equipment to make the 6-pound fretless guitar yourself, you can pick one up for about $670.
