For the past few centuries, the piano has been commonplace in music. During this same period of time, the instrument hasn't really evolved either. Well that is until now, as the 'Touch Keys' DIY sensor kit brings touch sensitivity to the surface of piano keys, similar to the screen of a smartphone or tablet.
Disney Research has expanded their vision of turning everything into a touch surface, placing a focus on items of the garden variety. The result of this is a project called "Botanicus Interacticus," and it turns any plant into a capacitive touch controller.
