making an aquapiano


There is the pianist. There is the fisherman. Then there is the guy with a lot of time who enjoys making pianos into aquariums which is totally awesome. He started with a television and then got the idea for a piano aquarium. So he hollowed out an old piano, wired up everything including the filter, lights, pumps, and heaters and then put it all back to look like a piano.

And get this, he plans on making the piano playable again.


  1. Hmm, first came the disco platform shoe with the dead goldfish “aquarium”. Then came the macintosh turned into an “aquarium”. Now the piano (playable soon at that even) turned into an “aquarium” … next we shall recombine the technology of getting plastinated human corpses on display and start turning some of these babies into “aquariums”… oh I can’t wait.

    I wouldn’t hold my breathe. The idea’s interesting but probably won’t hold water.

    Yeah, I don’t think it will float.

    I think it’s fantastic. It evokes images of rocky horror and pleasant eccentricity :P

    I don’t think the fish will survive being that near the piano innards. Too loud for them, will probably vibrate their skulls. Play Bach.

    This has got to be one of if not the most stupid ideas I’ve seen.

    Way to raise the bar hackaday.

    I thought it was awesome, while an electric keyboard doesn’t have nearly the class of a real piano, I would still like to have an upright electric piano aquarium. (Although I would also plug the electric keyboard into my computers MIDI port. :) )
