Lee Teschler, Editor-in-Chief for Machine Design, speaking with Robert Clippard about Clippard's pneumatically controlled guitar. Clippard designed the Automated Air Guitar to demonstrate the capabilities of their pneumatic valves and cylinders. Using 58 valves, 62 cylinders, a 128 channel board MIDI relay, an OSC/MIDI translator and an iPad, the Ovation acoustic guitar can play more than 20 different songs.

Clippard offers a variety of accessories that are designed for use with Push-Quick Fittings. These include special #10-32 threaded adapters in both male (p/n 11674) and female (p/n 11675) thread configurations and adapters that can be used to plug a Push-Quick fitting.
The threaded adapters insert into Push-Quick Fittings and provide either a male or female thread that can be used to mount any Clippard product with a #10-32 threaded inlet. This allows the direct attachment of the product to a Push-Quick Fitting without hoses or additional fittings.
