This is the Sega Grand Pianist, world’s smallest functional âgrand pianoâ.
You can’t actually play a music in it by yourself, and your fingers are far wider than the 4mm keys. But with the help of something with a sharp tip, as a toothpick, you’ll be able to see that all the 88 keys are functional and reproduce the correct note (actually synthesize and play through a built-in speaker)..
But you won’t need to play the tunes yourself; it comes with 100 songs preinstalled and has a SD card slot, so you can add others. While playing the songs, the keys will act accordingly (see it working in a video at the end of the post). The price, it will cost around $415 in Japan and $549 in US.
