Gocen Lets You Write and Play Your Own Sheet Music in Real Time

Researchers at Tokyo Metropolitan University have developed the Gocen, a handheld device that is able to scan and read sheet music. When you scan sheet music the Gocen will play it back to you in real-time using the instrument of your choice, whether its a single instrument like the piano or guitar to an entire symphony. On top of all that, the Gocen can even understand how loud a note should be played, based on its size. This device makes a great learning tool for composers and musicians.
