Trying a Guitar Hero-inspired piano

7 October 2013 Last updated at 00:01 BST

A team of students at Ulm University has created a special piano inspired by the multi-million selling game Guitar Hero.

For people who are unable to read sheet music, the piano uses a graphical interface to direct where notes should be played.

Researcher Amrei Röhlig explained to BBC technology reporter Dave Lee how it works - and whether it could even replace traditional learning methods.
