It’s an issue that’s plagued old-timey wild west theme towns for years. You want to keep the saloon looking authentic, with an upright piany in the corner, but at the same time you want to appeal to today’s tech-savvy tourists. Well an Italian company called Craft Line has come up with the perfect solution with this upright piano called the Mediano that features a hidden mechanism to hide and raise or lower an LCD TV.
Unfortunately the engineering bits that make it possible mean the piano bits have to go, so it’s no longer playable unless you swap out the keys with an electronic Casio or Korg or something. There’s also ample storage for other multimedia gear like DVD players or game consoles, and even a box of Kleenex for when your musician friends come over and see what monstrosity you had created from an innocent piano.
