Does anyone know the specs? How do they sound? etc... Thanks.  
 
This guys has some pretty innovative ideas as far as instruments are concerned.

Well looks to me as though its easier to get a patent in Japan.  
 
From the look of 'em the pickups look very similar to several single string pickups I've seen over the years although the mounting looks novel.  
 
Makes the front of his violin or cello a bit busy to say the least.

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Although these pups would probably work for a violin or cello, they are meant for a bass guitar (or regular 6 sting electric)

Oh!  
 
Looking at the pictures I thought they were on a cello or something very similar.

Okay Point taken!  
 
But the tops still look cluttered - IMO.

I was surprised to see the fan fret neck. I'm certain Ralf Novak didn't receive a patent in Japan so that's why it was granted to this fellow. Fan fret instruments go back about a hundred years (Italy?) so I'm surprised to see anyone receieve a patent for it.
