Dominik Hackl is getting ready to launch the first playable demo of the app called Magic Keys for Oculus Quest.
"I started working on this project about two years ago, initially intended to be a small AR app running on a tablet," wrote
Dominik Hackl. "After it turned out that it could be of actual use, I ported the application to the HoloLens alongside with some major improvements. I continued to add features and tried to enhance the visualization of the music but I was greatly limited by the small field-of-view of the HoloLens."
Then in early 2019, the developer started using Magic Leap One which allowed adding new features, including in-app feedback on note hits or misses (using MIDI input and output). In 2021, Oculus Quest released its Passthrough API, which allowed the developer to continue the project.
Hackl noted that his ultimate goal is to "develop a fully-featured Virtual Piano Teacher." Learn more about the project here.
