I am studying various scenarios for identifying specific fingers and their location on the guitar neck and placement on the fretboard using an antenna beneath the fretboard and RFID fingers and thumb tips.
I want to try clear circular, adhesive-backed tags on fingernails, micro-RFID chips embedded in acrylic nails, and my favourite but not for everybody, flexible implants inserted beneath the tips of each fingernail.
A 24.75 scale neck]is a hair over 51 square inches of surface real estate and it would be helpful to know what obstacles I face in designing an antenna or segmented antenna array that is embedded in or laminated beneath the fretboard.
This data would be used in a MIDI 2.0 Guitar Controller as an alternative to wiring frets and similar ideas. My current plan is the use of the Elk Pi / BLACKBOARD Bundle running the Linux-based Elk Audio 64-bit OS.
