A Wi-Fi Piano…Seriously


Yamaha has just released what could easily be the very first WiFi enabled piano. The new Mark IV series piano has a PDA-type Pocket Remote Controller, a wireless remote with dedicated buttons and a full-color LCD touch screen. In addition to the Pocket Remote, select models also feature the tablet-PC type Tablet Remote Controller, a portable 10.4” touch-screen LCD color control panel. Both remote controllers use the 802.11b to communicate with the piano. It also has a 80-gigabyte hard drive instead of the typical 16-megabyte flash memory found in previous models. Now if you want to be Elton John, just download the midi tracks and play along, impress the gals, and of course go ahead and wear that ostrich feathered magenta Fedora, you have been dying to buy.
