You know you're not looking at a traditional acoustic piano with the Seaboard Keyboard and its abandoning of the familiar separate keys further demonstrates its evolution towards a more hi-tech sort of musical instrument. What you'll notice instead is a skin of flexible material that stretches across the entire playing panel, complete with raised bars that suggest the arrangement of conventional white and black keys.

The Roli invention enables you to play casually or to produce melodies for computer editing. The device has been designed to be connected to your PC and used with special software; the tunes that you've created on the Seaboard Keyboard can be easily adjusted in volume, timbre and pitch.
