Kevin Godley and Lol Creme, original members of 10CC, originally developed the Gizmotron, the commercial production of which, failed spectacularly. The Gizmotron was an electro-mechanic sustaining device that made its way onto a few 10CC tracks, as well as being richly documented on the pair´s post-10CC album "Consequences"
I'd LOVE to have one of these, if the new version actually hits the stores!

Oh cool!

When not silly expensive I'd like one too, had been dreaming about it since the seventies ... and never really got to making one myself :-)

This one looks really cool! I love my e-bow, but have thought about what it would be like to be able to do that over several strings.

Looks like it's in the shops! One major retailer sell the guitar version for $372, the bass version coming to a tenner less. Here's a link to their website, specifically, some video demos:
