Under the direction of MIT Media Lab Associate Professor Pattie Maes, Zoran has been working on the Chameleon Guitar for about a year. He finished his proof-of-concept in August 2008 and after receiving positive feedback from Hwang and other musicians, he decided to take it further. Zoran worked with a Boston instrument maker, Marco Coppiardi, to build the guitar from scratch. Zoran's next step is to further integrate the guitar's computer and program the software. After that, he'll continue testing it with professional players, refine it and hopefully bring it to market.
