It was bound to happen sooner or later. Ever since those keyboards of the typing variety got all virtual on us, we knew the instrument version would go infrared and turn our rhythmic table tapping into beautiful music. The new device, from Digital Information Development, operates -- and looks -- quite like that Bluetooth version from iTech, 'cept there's a speaker in this unit to pump the tunes you're generating. Though there's just a 25-key keyboard in this version, DID is promising an 88-key "grand piano" unit, and even some sort of weighted notes (we'll believe it when we see it). This first iteration includes piano, organ, pipe organ and harpsichord sounds, and should cost around 15,000 yen ($130 USD) when it hits stores in Japan this November.
