You mean no more bruised, sensitive or calloused fingers!? Wow! That would be great! I could play the guitar without my fingers being super sensitive!

I'm wondering if they will actually manufacture it since it would lead to the demise of a multibillion dollar test strip and lancet industry. Can our economy take another blow?? LOL
