Re-designing acoustic musical instrument according to the abilities and characteristics of rapid prototype materials After laser printing on bread , one can print instruments! My friend Amit Zoran designed this really neat concept of an acoustic guitar sound box that has been given a unique sound and behavior through a CAD/CAM process. His research goal at the MIT Media Laboratory in the Ambient Intelligence research group , is to find and analyze a space for structural innovation, especially for acoustic instruments. His works enables players to customize their own sound by assembling different sound cells, e.g physical parts of the instruments designed in CAD/CAM, instead of considering the instrument as one big sound box.
