An early prototype of the Airpiano
Each of the eight Infrared proximity sensors across the surface of the Airpiano can register and play three notes depending on the user's vertical hand position
Seeing the Airpiano being played, one can't help but be reminded of a graceful martial artist, musical conductor or mysterious magician. The innovative interface is activated and controlled by moving a hand in mid-air above the flat display surface and within range of a sensor array matrix. Driven by custom software, the device can put a huge library of tones and sounds at a player's disposal.
