Yamaha Develops Vocaloid Keyboard for Real Time Character Vocals

In a recent technology demo, Yamaha showed off a new keyboard that allows users to “play” Vocaloid characters in real time. The unique keyboard design allows users to control the vocals and phonetics with the left hand, and the tones and pitch with the right hand. It’s a really interesting concept that could potentially be used to allow live demonstrations. Typical users were able to learn the controls quickly enough to play simple songs after just a few hours.

There’s no word on if this is simply a concept product, or if it will be mass produced. The cost, however, will surely be quite expensive.
