    The piano key bracelet thing says classy. I'll add that to my piano key tie and I'm ready for a night on the town.

    I've seen something like this before. But homemade, well it may have been a modded oxy8.

    Aww my crazy idea was deleted with the server reset

    Oh well here we go again !!

    Grab yourself a pair of these, an Oxygen 8 keyboard and a copy of Bomes

    Each finger will send out a different midi message on the piano hands and by cross referencing(with Bomes) with which button on the oxygen 8 is pressed, we can give each buttons 10 states, 1 state for each finger you press it with.

    Using Bomes its possible to tell which finger is hitting which key as long as your not hitting 2 keys at the same time. With this information we can make each 1 of the 25 buttons on the oxygen 8 send 10 different midi messages. Because each button 10 different possibilities of fingers it can be pressed with and there are 25 keys on the Oxygen 8 this gives us 250 different midi messages.

    I don't actually recommend anyone try this unless your up for a laugh

    If someone is crazy enough to want to try this, hit me up a message and i will explain in more detail how to do the coding in bomes
