Okay, all jokes aside, I can't help but wonder if this same technology will be applied to instrument strings?

Wow, exoskeletons and all... Pretty wild stuff.

Hey...I see an even better technological application...ukulele strings that tune themselves. Put a tungsten filament through the center of the string and use heat to control the tension...drive it from a simple tuner circuit with an error voltage output. :)

It might be wise to patent that idea as something like "Smart Strings"!
