Piano Hands gloves let you play anywhere

Shifting a real piano around isn't easy - just ask Laurel and Hardy - so let's be thankful that someone has seen fit to create the Piano Hands.

This is simply a pair of gloves; each finger has a sensor in the tip so that when you strike a flat surface, a sound is produced. Thus, you can rock out on the old Joanna anywhere you like. You can even select a different sound should you wish - eight are included.

All of which seems splendid, though perhaps not quite as technically impressive as the AirPiano device that MusicRadar previously reported on.

And of course, these being black gloves, users will also be able to keep their hands warm during those cold winter months and break out some performance mime.

The Piano Hands cost around £50 and will be available soon from I Want One Of Those.
