PianoDisc iQ Piano
At this year's MusikMesse expo in Germany, PianoDisc made an unusual addition to its lineup with the introduction of its iQ add-on. The docking device works with most pianos and retrofits them to respond to the melody of almost any digital device, with special attention to Apple hardware. While it will cue the piano to play alongside CDs, DVDs, and generic digital players, the receiver includes a Universal Dock to play directly from any compatible iPod. The system is also smart enough to play music from a networked computer's iTunes library and will record the owner's own pieces through software.
Pricing and release dates for PianoDisc's system are currently unavailable. [via AVING]
