What's the quickest way to ruin a beautiful 1904 Chickering Upright Grand Piano? That's an easy one,
demolish stick a computer in it. That's what Ebay user compianos did. This 1904 Chickering includes a ridiculously powerful (and debatably real) "6.8 GHz processor," with a puny 1 GB of RAM, 500 GB hard drive and 26-inch hidden LCD display. To make this big beauty even more mediocre is the inclusion of Windows XP Media Center Edition and the fact that all of the piano part of the 1904 Chickering have been stripped out. It does include a hidden drawer for remotes and an automatic sliding panel (click below to see a video of said panel in action) for the LCD display so it at least looks like a real piano.
For the nitty-gritty — this compiano has a current price of $7,000 on Ebay, with a Buy-It-Now at $12,000 with 20-percent supposedly being donated to charity. Which charity? Well of course, the poverty-stricken PC Case Modding Children of Qatar Fund, obviously. The seller is also accepting trades of a car and cash for this strange work of art, if this Ebay auction wasn't shady enough as is.
