Ladies and gentlemen, please meet “Stanley,” which is being described by its creator, Digital Kitchen, as the “world’s first interactive player piano” that will debut at this weekend’s Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle (which is basically akin to the Pitchfork Festival). As part of the event, the indie music-loving Stanley has not only learned songs from each of the acts that are taking part (full, pretty awesome lineup here), but will now take your song requests and messages via Twitter. So far, Stanley’s amassed a mere 58 followers, but we’re sure this number will grow and, yes, we are quite anxious to hear what his refurbished, 100-year-old ebonies and ivories can roll out. Credits after the jump.
