10 artists who used tech to make better music

5. Neil Young

Aside from being a prolific musician and a model train enthusiast, Young is also an inventor. His latest project is the Pono music player, a device built to help listeners appreciate better audio — and not MP3s. The impetus behind PonoMusic is reviving high-quality audio. Young's Kickstarter has more than 16,000 backers who have pledged more than $5 million.
