Yahama has made the Rolls Royce of pianos.
'Built around an Intel Pentium III computer chip, the piano allows functions to be controlled by a user's voice and lets the user watch an artist's performance stored on disc while hearing the concert. When the disc is inserted into a built-in DVD player, the performance is displayed on a computer monitor as keys and pedals move up and down recreating the piano part.'
And only $333,000, where do I sign up?

What I thought was interesting was the fact that it was a concept piano, not one intended for sale, but that several dealers went ahead and requested one anyway. The article went further to state that each of these pianos is hand crafted over a period of seven months and that only three have been made to date.
