Xiaomi Mijia Smart Piano Light new unusual gadget unveiled
The Xiaomi Mijia Smart Piano Light is crowdfunding in China. The campaign has already been supported by 300 people, meaning the project has hit 419% of its financial target. The light, 460 mm (~18-in) long, can illuminate your score and all 88 keys on your piano. An integrated longitudinal TIR (terminal imaging radar) ensures light is directed away from your face, avoiding glare.
You can also use radar detection to automatically switch on the LED light when you arrive at or leave the instrument. The detection sensitivity, distance, and time delay can be configured in the Mijia app, where you can also view a record of your practice time based on the same sensing technology. Alternatively, you can control the smart piano light with Xiaomi AI voice commands or a remote. The remote, which doubles as a metronome, can be used to adjust the brightness and color temperature of the light.
You can recharge the remote via USB-C, with an expected 62-day lifetime on a single charge. Presets include a focus mode with a 5000K cool white light or a softer 4000K neutral light which may be better for tired eyes. Customers in China can pledge 699 yuan (~US$100) to the Xiaomi Youpin crowdfunding campaign to receive the gadget. The product page lists the MSRP of the device as 999 yuan (~US$144). It is unclear if Xiaomi intends to launch this product globally.
