Air....Piano???


Omer Yosha has created a pretty cool instrument. The Air Piano is an electronic piano of sorts that lets you play notes without touching any keys. It uses infrared technology to detect movement and plays a music note based on where the movement came from. If you leave your hand hovering over a spot the Air Piano will sustain the note. It also appears that you can change octaves by raising or lowering your hand over one of the sensors. It seems that infrared technology has come a long way from the days of the Sega Activator.

yup just like everything related to sega...sega activator, sega gamegear, sega dreamcast....the list goes on forever.

although for its time, the gamegear had the best handheld graphics (compared to gameboy)...i wanted one but they were too dayum expensive...
