airpianoIssue: XIX.2 March + April 2012
The airpiano is a MIDI/OSC controller that lets the user trigger invisible keys and faders in midair. The device can be used for playing melodies, triggering loops, and controlling effects. On-board LED feedback allows performing without the need for a computer display. Setting the 24 virtual keys and eight virtual faders is accomplished with custom software. The airpiano introduces not only an intuitive and simple touch-free interaction, but an entirely new user experience centered around exploring this experimental instrument.
