Have you ever yearned for a more authentic sounding vibrato? Then feast your eyes on this fancy bit of engineering, the Z.Vex Candela Vibrophase! Combining a candle, Stirling Engine, solar cells and photocells, the Vibrophase generates its own current and power that drives a very pleasant sounding vibrato.

Such beautiful work doesn’t come cheap, (an estimated $6000!) therefore we might have to stick with cheaper battery powered alternatives for the time being. One can always dream….
