Airpiano from Germany

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

Above 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.

Airpiano with Ableton:

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 is filled as a Provisional U.S. Patent Application (Number: 60/989,986).

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