A REAL VIRTUAL PIANO


Posted on April 30th, by Graeme in iOS Music Apps.

Do you have a hankering for a Steinway piano, but don’t know where to put it? Next to the telly? Beside the ping-pong table in the garage? Now the decision is made easy for you. With the new Steinway Augmented Reality App, you can display the entire range of Steinway & Sons models in their actual size — seven grand pianos, from a Model S baby grand through a Model D concert grand, and two upright piano models, V-125 and K-132 (K-52 in Americas) — and actually see which instrument will be the best choice for your home. After downloading the free Steinway Augmented Reality App from the App Store, direct the camera of your iPad or iPhone to the desired spot in the room and select a grand or upright piano from the on-screen menu. You will be able to see, model by model, which instrument is most visually and spatially suitable. The 3D visualization allows you to rotate and move the piano, viewing it from various perspectives, until the perfect position is found. With the screenshot function, you can save your favorite piano positions in your photo archive and share these images with your family and friends – who, no doubt, will suddenly become difficult to contact until someone else has carried the piano into the house. In addition, the authorised Steinway dealer in your area can get a first impression of your home, and your preferred piano, and give you personalised advice. So don’t forget to clean up any mess first.
