#TBT: Chicagoans Delight Over Magically Cheeky Self-Playing Piano

 

Holiday cheer was rampant in Chicago’s Union Station in 2013 when an intelligent grand piano teased nearby passengers with its tunes.

Amtrak and Rob Bliss Creative created a piano that responded to its environment in real-time – from playing rumbling bass notes while a businessman cursed on his phone, to accompanying a little girl rehearsing ‘Chopsticks’, the instrument was spookily smart.

Several pedestrians whipped out their own instruments and performed breathtaking renditions with the ivory genius. Another was happy just to dance to the jazzy melodies.

To top it all off, the piano started belting a rousing chorus of ‘Deck The Halls’ as Santa Claus walked by.
