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

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
