Staff-based musical interface

This is pretty interesting – it’s an interface that can read hand-written musical notation, and convert it into MIDI. In this video, the interface plays through a piano interface, and manages to get the piano playing in real-time.

Very interesting, but I really can’t think of any any real-world application for this. There are better ways to get a piano to play automatically… but I guess that this is pretty remarkable nonetheless.

    no there are a militiude of uses for this dj’s needing a great hook on the fly Vs preset samples. (dun get me wrong some DJ’s are mad sick at filling the gaps on the fly, but why omit that which could potential make you great .)
