25 Radically Revamped Pianos

From See-Through Grand Pianos to Twitter-Controlled Instruments

— May 31, 2013 — Art & Design
Classical music is both a joy to listen to and a privilege to play, but if you're looking to spice up your otherwise ordinary instruments, then these radically revamped pianos will encourage even those not quite musically inclined to give it a try.

Pianos are often one of those classical instruments that are associated with elegance and grace. Learning to play the piano is something many parents attempt to teach their children, in hopes of giving them a more balanced and cultured life. These revamped pianos however, have been restructured into all sorts of different shapes, incorporating new technologies into the mix. From pianos that are strikingly transparent in design to those that are amazingly portable, these radically revamped pianos are targeting a whole new generation of youth more susceptible to high-tech and practical products.
