Easy as Pi, Piano

We made the Easy as Pi Piano system to make learning chords faster and easier. The Easy as Pi Piano system functions as a piano teacher. Learn to play the chords to your favorite song! The servo-motor lasers will show you which keys to play. Slow it down or speed it up with the scale. On the monitor, you will see finger placements, the current chord, and the lyrics to the song.

  1. Note: For the “Raspi64″ the raspberry pi is only loaded with Raspbmc. It was just placed inside an N64.

  2. Is there a MAKE article on how to build this?

    Wow, that Spin case is head and shoulders above most of the other cases I’ve seen!

    Lame – nothing really of substance except maybe that RFID server or that Server Control Monitor – those were pretty awesome, honorable mention for the wedding invitations idea maybe. Everything else was “look at my pretty box to hide the electronics” or rehashed idea to ∞+1. Internet radio, streaming widgets of data, remote garage door opener? Siri Proxi? as a control switch? These are all things that we get from existing smartphones and are “let me show you this!” gimmicky things that all ultimately serve to be a waste of time.
