Autoklavierspieler: Rhea

3rd generation of robotic piano player: Rhea announced.

Rhea was developed with the focus on easy transportation and fast setup. Also the new electronics based on Escher and EscherFET should enable a much finer calibration and faster repetition times also on failureprone, cheap pianos.

Furthermore Rhea should be a first series for distribution, enabling also others to build and control the robot piano player, not only his creator. Therefore, as a midterm goal, documentation will be enhanced and open source software for the piano released.

The first public viewing is scheduled at "Spor" festival for contemporary music and sound in Aarhus Denmark on the 7-23rd of May 2010.
