well, i thunk that the subject was bowing-with-a-bow, but:
since it turned into e-bowing:
i have a kikuyae ---(chrysanthemum harp)--- which is a japanese 
folk-instrument, inna dulcimer-stylie.
i built a lil 'fan' w/a brushless motor ---(that i got from radio 
shack/tandy)--- which is mounted above the strings. when the motor is 
on, the soft blades of the fan brush the strings into activity: kinda like 
the old 'gizmotron', but simpler:
homemade bowing:
great for looping.....
