We first learned about Stanley last summer, when he was introduced at the Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle. Everyone’s favorite interactive piano that can take take requests via Twitter is back, this time to play at the Chobani SoHo yogurt bar for the New York-based non-profit Sing for Hope. Digital Kitchen is taking care of the creative legwork and will be broadcasting Stanley on www.singforhope.com June 1-2.
Stanley has collected nearly 2,200 followers in the past year, which is impressive when you take into account that he is just a musical instrument and doesn’t have thumbs. No word yet on whether Stanley is familiar with Watson, the “Jeopardy” computer, but the two could probably have an interesting electronic bromance if they ever got together in the same room. Anyone who would like to request a song can tweet @StanleyPiano.
