Illumination Innovation

Internet of Things technology is paving the way for innovators to explore new realms of connected products. Kevin McCarthy, the founder of McCarthy music, has spearheaded the creation of the Illuminating Piano a product that helps people learn to play the instrument. Apart from the normal functioning of the black and white keys, this keyboard is outfitted with lights that emanate from the note which is to be played next. A custom software program displaying the sheet music accompanies the product, and communicates with the keyboard what colored lights need to be lit and at what pace.

We think this product is a fascinating way to integrate connectivity and “smarts” into a product that hasn’t been revolutionized for years. Additionally, this gives a new way to learn a beautiful talent, and we applaud that. Learn more about this interesting use of IoT innovation here:   []
