Airpiano – Wireless Concerto on Air


You’ve seen air guitars, air drums, and other musical instrument gadgetries grace the geekigadgets pages – it should be no surprise to see an air piano now. You know you have these coming music geeks. Before the piano virtuoso in you judge this gadget, read on first to see if the airpiano is can be really called a radical new musical instrument or it belongs to the realms of Guitar Hero or amusement arcades. The airpiano is basically a MIDI and OSC controller with invisible mid-air keys and faders. It features a simple touch-free control that uses 3D hand gestures that enables musicians and performers to play music in the “air” with no need for a visual interface. The airpiano has a matrix of 24 discrete keys and 8 faders, making it very simple to trigger MIDI and OSC messages. The airpiano by itself can’t produce any sounds. It must communicate with the custom airpiano software installed on a computer which in turn sends the MIDI and Open Sound Control (OSC) messages to other software or hardware. When a key or a fader in the air has been triggered, the software registers the actions and sends messages out accordingly. Numerous arrangement presets combining keys and faders can be set and assigned with different properties and message types.

Appearance wise, the airpiano is no slouch. It’s not exactly made from exotic maple or beech but it still looks classy with its beautiful walnut wood with red acrylic glass construction.

Features:
• 40 LEDs provide easy orientation and visual feedback
• 1 momentary button allows switching between presets directly from the device
• ¼-inch connector for using an expression pedal or a foot switch
• Power 9Vdc
• USB 2.0
• Dimensions: 960 x 160 x 26 mm; Weight: 2.8 kg
