New Hololens App Offers Virtual Reality Piano Lessons

Technology By


Still wanting to learn how to play piano but don’t have time for lessons? Teomirn might have the solution.

According to a UploadVR, the idea comes from a Japanese team who set out to create an app that uses virtual reality to teach wannabe pianists the score. Essentially, the app is a personal piano teacher available for download.

Teomirn, which uses Microsoft’s HoloLens headset, syncs up with a real piano where users can choose from a library of songs. Users then practice their musical finesse in two modes.

In the first, users watch a pair of virtual hands demonstrate the correct way to play each song. In the second, users follow along as pair of hologram hands plays a song on a virtual keyboard above the real one. Similar to a video game, players can simultaneously mimic the same hand motions.

The app is still in the design stage but you can watch a preview here.
