Finnish students have developed a playable air guitar.  
I think that's silly and way cool.

I kind of liked this self-tuning acoustic piano:

and please don't let Peter Frampton get a hold of this:

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.

A local music store is selling an instructional DVD on "Playing Air Guitar".  
 
I think half the new bands I hear have used this DVD.  
 
An old Johnny Carson joke, "Researchers have finally found the cause of all cancer. It's saliva. The good news is that it only causes cancer when swallowed in small amounts over a prolonged period of time."  
 
You can always start the "perfect church." Unfortunately, as soon as you get your first member, the problems begin.  
 
An old Yiddish saying, "Ask two Jews a question and you'll get three different opinions."  
 
Substitute "band" for "church" or "musicians" for "Jews."  
 
"All women are bitches except for Mom, but lately she's been a bitch too."
