The Visual Piano is a musical instrument designed for people with hearing impairment, which transforms musical notes into unique lighting effects and melodies into programmable visual patterns. The project aims to motivate the hearing loss community to enjoy and compose music. 
This project was created by a team of 5 students during the 2019 CU Make-a-thon at Cornell University and won the Entrepreneurship Award.
