It's raining keyboards at Yamaha's design exhibit in Milan

Not enough music in your life? Specifically, piano? Then you'll love Yamaha's design exhibition in Milan, "Key for You." The company was showing off some concept designs integrating piano keyboards into objects you wouldn't expect — from countertops to notebooks. There are portable ones that are practical and elegant and others that would fit nicely as part of home theater.

The stated theme of the exhibit is to give insight into the "bond between people and instruments," though I imagine most people would leave thinking, "Where can I get one of those?"
