Yamaha has developed the Silent Piano. It may sound a little strange, but for many pianists, it provides the opportunity to practice their passion using headphones to hear the acoustic sound without upsetting the neighbors.

When the silent function is activated, the hammers will no longer hit the strings and instead, a highly sophisticated sensor-technology captures all movements of the keys and sends them to the digital tone module.

To demonstrate the new tech, classical pianist HJ Lim performed a 'Silent Session,' playing Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No.2 in complete silence while drifting casually down a canal at 6 in the morning, letting sleepy residence slumber without disruption.
