Musician Plays Neil Diamond Classic on Five Smartphone Guitar

While the video above is only tangentially related to eBooks, it still represents the coolest use of smartphones this editor has seen since the first time he read a book on an iPhone.

Make:Online and BoingBoing pointed us to this most excellent video of electronic musician Steffest playing a Neil Diamond classic on a guitar hacked together with iPhones.

Check it out: “Besides being able to cobble together impromptu heterogeneous digital instruments on the fly, cross-platform mobile hacker and part-time smartphone rock god Steffest can also play. Not since Super Diamond have I seen a more compelling rendition of Cracklin Rosie.”
