Carolan Guitar
Comment

The Carolan Guitar is an acoustic guitar that tells its life story.

The Carolan Guitar project is hosted at the University of Nottingham‘s Mixed Reality Laboratory. MRL is a technology research lab dedicated to exploring new ways of interacting with computers. Our research focuses on the boundaries between the physical and the digital – hence the name mixed reality – and we have a particular interest in cultural and creative applications of computers, including music.
