Compiano – Geek Meets Chic

Christina Crouch - Nov 27, 2007

There is some part of everyone that knows if you ever make it big, no matter how you do so, you are going to buy a piano. Nothing says “I’m filthy stinking rich” like pianos do and so we will get one, even if we have no musical talent whatsoever. With this new case mod though, you can have a piano you will actually use.

This 1904 Chickering Upright Grand Piano is actually cleverly disguising a 26’ wide screen Philips LCD HDTV/computer monitor, stereo speakers, a wireless Microsoft keyboard with intergrated mouse and a CD/DVD Burner and a remote control. It has a 6.8 GHz processor, 1 GB RAM and a 500 GB hard drive. It comes with Windows XP Media center Edition so you’ll be Vista free.

How could it get much better than that? Aside from a couple of compartments you could store disks and such in, it can’t. You can get this amazing mod on eBay with a Buy-it-Now price of $20,000 or you can place a bid for just $7,000.
