    Humbly begging the OP's pardon. I had gone on a mild rant that 'just a picture was not enough' and clearly missed the link to the article.

    Still, an audio link would be the most telling of all, and I wonder why that does not cross the writer / publisher's minds?


    Best regards.

    Interesting that the Boccioni/stealth look is due to sound considerations.

    Another alternative design was Poul Henningsen´s (1931):

    But it seems to have been focused on fashionable materials and visual appearance. The sound however was/is considered quite poor.

    The case looks nice... I'd really need to hear the sound to decide if there is a big difference, though.

    I always find reinventions fun, though. I saw the fluid piano a while ago:

    Perhaps more viable than other microtonal piano variants.
