 There’s something magical about this instrument

The AirPiano is an innovative musical interface which allows playing and controlling software instruments simply by moving hands in the air.

 

The AirPiano is a virtual matrix of keys and faders, each assigned with MIDI messages and ready to be triggered. The length of a triggered note is equivalent to the time a hand is placed on the corresponding virtual key.
This is also confirmed by LED feedback.

The AirPiano Software allows easy setup, loading/saving presets and transposing notes.

The AirPiano is still in its prototype phase and its concept of a virtual matrix might eventually be used for other applications and purposes.
The AirPiano concept was filed as a Provisional U.S. Patent Application (Number: 60/989,986).

Specifications: Polyphonic, MIDI protocol,
Up to 24 keys / 8 faders, USB connectivity
