Piano made up of more than 100 Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablets debuts in London
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is a svelte tablet, regardless if you are talking about the 8-inch model, or the one with a 9.7-inch screen. Both slates are just 5.6mm thin. But when you put a large quantity of them together, you can end up with something rather substantial. For the holiday season, Samsung put together over 100 Galaxy Tab S2 tablets in order to make an upright piano. The result is something to behold. From the tablets displaying the piano keys, to the slates used to build out the rest of the instrument, the tablet piano is a thing of beauty.

Put on display at London’s Spitalfields Market, pianist Myleene Klass was the first to play the tablet piano. Classically trained, Klass unwrapped a giant gift box inside the mall to unveil the instrument. There is no word so far from Samsung about whether the tablet piano is going to tour during the holiday season.


Assuming that the piano is comprised of the 9.7-inch version of the device, the retail value of the tablets used to create the instrument would be approximately $40,000. That is a rough estimate, and if Samsung releases a more official number, we would be glad to update this story.

Well, a video would be nice because I honestly doubt you can play anything more advanced than Happy Birthday on it

Ha That's Funny But A Skilled Player Wouldn't Have A Problem Using Touch After A Little Practice.

No I'm Not, But I Know When You're Skilled At Something You Learn To Adapt To New Things Pretty Easily. I'm Skilled At A Few Things But Sadly I've Never Wanted To Play An Instrument. Let Me Ask You A Question Do You Find It Hard To Play Complex Touch Based Games Like N.O.V.A 3.? I Don't, I Love Touch Based Games And I'm Very Good At Them.

You Mean Please Learn Proper Grammar Because I Know How To Write Just Fine And I'm Typing Not Writing. I Know My Grammar Is Wrong because You're Not Suppose To Capitalize Every Word But I Like Typing In This Manner So I'm Not Going To Stop Just Because Others Don't Like It.

I was never formally trained on piano (I'm teaching myself), but I can play the melody of Border of Life and all of Zero's theme from Megaman X2 on my phone touchscreen, foreground and background melodies at the same time. Takes a lot of practice and patience, but it's very doable

Those marketing guys at Samsung must have some serious mental issues if they came up with such a ridiculous idea to promote a tablet. Who is the potential target audience? 6 year old kids at Toys'R US?

they're trying to show off the fact that their tablets and phones are the only android devices out there that let users play with virtual instruments with little to no delay afaik apple's been the only manufacturer to have this features on their phones and tablets but on the bright side Android 6.0/N (?) will natively support this in the future
