The AirPiano

June 30th, 2008        

Ever thought of playing music without touching anything? The AirPiano allows you to do so. The AirPiano is designed by Omer Yosha. It is an innovative musical interface which allows playing and controlling software instruments simply by moving hands in the air. It is a virtual matrix of keys and faders, each assigned with MIDI messages and ready to be triggered. Check out the demonstration after the break.

The length of a triggered note is equivalent to the time a hand is placed on the corresponding virtual key. This is also confirmed by LED feedback. The AirPiano Software allows easy setup, loading/saving presets and transposing notes. The AirPiano is still in its prototype phase and its concept of a virtual matrix might eventually be used for other applications and purposes.
