The Walking Piano
The Walking Piano, also called the Big Piano by its creator, Remo Saraceni, is an oversized synthesizer. Merging dance, music, and play, it is played by the user's feet tapping the keys to make music. Versions of the piano have been installed in museums, children's hospitals, and other public places around the world.
The Walking Piano appeared in the 1988 Tom Hanks movie Big, in a scene filmed at FAO Schwarz in New York City. The piano is now housed in the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
