Airpiano makes you look like a hippy pianist, still look abit stupid in doing so
When people talked to me about Air Guitar, I laughed at the concept of faking your jamming sessions. Then there’s this Airpiano that started in 2008 when a design student Omer Yosha made it popular. Again, the idea is quite stupid, though some would say it’s cool and magical. I mean, waving in the air as if you’re a guitarist or pianist? Play some proper musical instrument please.
But now, Airpiano is getting real. I can’t seem to find the words to describe this new flick, so you’ll have to let the video explain everything. It’ll cost you €1,099 (about $1,607) if you’re in Europe, though I’m not sure if you can get it anywhere else in this little earth.
The theremin-like Airpiano doesn’t actually produce any sounds itself, instead it uses proximity sensors to feed MIDI and OSC (open sound control) signals to a computer over USB, allowing musicians and non-musicians alike to command soft synths with only the majestic wave of a hand. It’s more realistic then your Air Guitar you know, I still find it stupid to do so, then the traditional string instruments.
