I loved the little girl who played and seemed totally unaware that the piano playing with her was unusual.

Monkeys, but all students have to buy this device? Must be expensive then.

That was wonderful. I laughed out loud three times during it (the dancing guy, the apologetic chords after the businessman yelled at it, and Santa). Thanks for sharing!

The software is about $70, is required on both ends, and you'll have to connect a MIDI capable keyboard or piano to your computer. It works well, though; they've demonstrated it at several MTNA conferences.

Hah, the internet age for Piano came sooner that I thought.
For the full effect you would a piano like Yamaha Disklavier, to see the keys pressed by a magical force.

I think some time in the future, all you need would be a keyboard with realistic action and a set of great speakers, (the input and output device), everything else can be hosted on the cloud.

Just a thought, not to start a debate smile
