Mark Rober, a prominent YouTube personality and former engineer at both NASA and Apple, has created the ‘Chopstix’ piano. The Chopstix at its core is a modified version of a high end self-playing piano from ‘Edelweiss,’ a Camrbidge-based piano manufacturer. The automatic piano has been modified to be able to individually play each of its keys upon instruction. The original piano supported the automatic recognition of music notes and the ability to play roughly 30 keys at one time.
With the Chopstix’s ability to play every single key on the keyboard, mimicking speech has become possible. Mark Rober shows off the piano’s ability to say different phrases on its own, such as “Hello, I am a talking piano, and I’m so cool!” The Chopstix is instructed by large paper sheets with individually punched holes that are inserted into the back of the piano, which it then reads and plays the notes that correspond to the punched holes.
