Airpiano Like an Air Guitar, Only Fancier

 |  |  |  |  April 27, 2011

I wager that at one point or another we have all played a little bit of air guitar when the mood hit while jamming to a good song on the radio. I know I have seen plenty of folks get down with some air guitar, but I can’t say that I have ever seen anyone get fancy with some air piano.

This unique air piano called simply enough the airpiano that is made with some sort of sensors attached to a chunk of wood. The guy behind the concept device says that it is comparable to a Theremin.

The airpiano acts as a USB/Midi controller, and has eight infrared proximity sensors with up to 24 virtual keys and eight virtual faders. It has 40 LEDs for orientation and feedback and a lot more. It also has an expression pedal or foot switch connector. You can see the thing in action in the video below:
