He's playing your song.

Editor's Pick

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.
