Decked out with an iPod full of music, this instrument provides live accompaniment

Sound systems keep getting more and more sophisticated as makers search for the perfect way to capture the clearest playback of a song. But no matter the quality of the speaker, nothing beats the sound of live music. The self-playing Edelweiss Piano combines playback audio with live music. The piano comes with a built-in iPod that comes with 400 songs. A high fidelity speaker plays the track in crisp sound while the piano keys play the backing track. The iPod comes full of songs from a range of genres and users can add more tracks through a music store.
