Hungarian pianist Gergely Bogányi recently gave the classic grand piano a makeover with a futuristic twist. The Bogányi Piano presents a sleek two-leg design that looks like a sideways “V” in profile. Supporting the piano with two legs instead of three lets sound waves waft unobstructed to the audience. Inside, when struck by the hammers attached to the keys, the strings vibrate against a composite wood-and-iron soundboard, which produces a set of distinctive tones.

Keyboardist Brockett Parsons has designed a circular instrument known as PianoArc that allows him to tickle the ivories from every direction. The PianoArc is, essentially, three standard 88-note keyboards in one. It includes 294 keys on a body whose height and tilting angle can be adjusted. As the keyboardist for pop music icon Lady Gaga, Parsons has created a musical device that is altogether functional, artistic, and aesthetically pleasing.
