Guitar Hero controller mod integrates a 7-inch touchscreen LCD

Engadget writes:

"As go the real guitars, so go Guitar Hero controllers, and hot on the heels of that axe with integrated visualizer we just saw, Cyberpyrot over at the AcidMods forums has managed to stuff a seven-inch LCD with touchpanel overlay into a GHIII controller. The LCD shows a mirror of the game itself, but its location means that the strummer had to be replaced with a magnetic switch controlled by a metal "pick." The touch overlay allows players to activate the whammy simply by sweeping across the screen, and Cyberpyrot says the next step is to add optics so the guitar can play itself. That ought to add some fuel to the real-guitar-vs-Guitar-Hero debate, we think."

First of all.. why is the LCD screen upside down? When I first saw it I thought, ok this way the guy doesn't need a TV, he can just keep his head down like a sobbing idiot and play off of that... BUT IT'S UPSIDE DOWN!

Seriously... this is the equivalent of me turning a blender into a portable washer machine for socks... sure it's possible... but why the hell do it?

very dumb mod. i thought because it was touch you could strum it like that ds game jam sessions. if the fat ass could get it to do that it would be interesting but as it is now it seems to work worse(strumming in a weird spot) and it doesnt actually aid you because you cant see it while playing.

TO THE KID THAT MADE IT: HAVE MORE SEX. YOU CANT DO WORSE THAN THIS. OR CAN YOU?
