Digital Kitchen: Stanley Piano

Published on .

He may look like an old fashioned piano but, thanks to Digital Kitchen, Stanley Piano is the very latest in ingenious interactive experiments. Just tweet song requests to @stanleypiano (you'lll get an automated reply when your song is ready to play), and watch him play your favorite song.

Each time a song is ready to play, a pre-made Midi file of Stanley's rendition is uploaded, while note data is sent to Stanley's hardware controller. Each note activates an electric solenoid valve, which in turn plays a key. Stanley will be streaming live from Seattle's Capitol Hill Block Party from July 20-22nd.
