The poor man's Robot?

I saw the new N-Tune on-board tuner referred to as "the poor man's robot" today on message board. I thought it was just funny enough to warrant a post on a genuinely cool idea for a piece of gear (if it works). So, i'm looking for some comments on this one people- have you tried it? No? If so, how was it?

Here's a little info for the curious:

N-Tune is a convenient solution for fast, accurate guitar tuning. Whether you're in the studio, on stage, or just practicing, simply pull your guitar's volume knob and use N-Tune's super-bright display to silently tune up in seconds. Then push it back down to play - with perfect tone, thanks to N-Tune's true bypass design. N-Tune can be easily installed in most electric guitars using standard soldering tools. For guitars with single coil pickups, the 250k ohm (Fender*-style) kit is recommended. For guitars with humbucking pickups, the 500k ohm (Gibson*-style) kit is recommended. Each kit comes with multiple colored tuning rings specifically designed to give you a perfect color match to your guitar s existing volume knob and trim. Best of all, no permanent modification of your guitar is required!
