A light-up keyboard from Roli teaches you to play piano like it’s Guitar Hero

Many people try to learn an instrument at one point or another in their life, and for a lot of us that instrument is the piano. But when you give up learning there’s no easy way back — not without paying for expensive lessons at least.

Music hardware startup Roli wants to change this with the launch of Lumi: a 24-key, light-up keyboard and companion app that teaches users how to play the piano from scratch, before transforming into a tool for jamming and even composition.

The keyboard and companion app are available to preorder on Kickstarter today with a base price of $249 (€249) and early bird sales offering Lumi as cheap as $146. Shipping starts in October.
