Is there a better way to use technology than turning a piano into a huge retro NES console and then playing a medley of Koji Kondo superhits on it? No. No there is not.

The piano is the brainchild of the YouTube channel Player Piano, who got pianist Sonya Belousova to play a medley of tunes from the soundtrack of Nintendo classic Super Mario Bros.

Right, let’s take a tour of this pianistic wonder of the gaming world, shall we?



First of all, it’s even got the right cables

Red and yellow is the colour of nostalgia.

 

The piano stool is a NES controller

It couldn’t be anything else, could it?

 

There are POWER and RESET buttons on the front

The detail is sending our nerd receptors into overdrive.

 

And then, the ultimate cartridge console-based nod to the past

Nothing worse than a dusty cartridge. *cries tears of ecstasy*
