That was THE most interesting video I have seen in a LONG time! I am so into neuro-pathways and wiring of the brain for music. This spoke volumes to me.

Thanks Mario for sharing that! I real treasure in my book!

I have tried such a bike more than once and it is difficult. So far I made about 10 to 15 yards before the bike sabotaged further usage.

(That picture of from the location's web site, I'm not the person in the photo.)

The guy in the video did have a straight path to follow with lots of empty roome to the left and to the right. In Schmilau, that is where that picture is taken, you don't have the room to really explore that bike.

It is not only that knowledge is not a synonym for understanding, what [probably] everybody is doing wrong in a situation like this, is the simple thing of overreacting. Did you see how far he turned the handlebar und thus the wheel? If you corrected your driving like this with a regular bicycle you also would eratically hop off the bike.

The next time I'm at that location is in October. I will try that bike again. If you have a chance, try such a bicycle. It is quite an experience.

I agree about the overreacting but when you are trained into thinking that when I move the handle bars left the bike will go left and if it doesn't go left fast enough you naturally turn the handle bars farther to the left! On this bike that means crash ville!

I'm not sure about that, but I took the opportunity being early before the rest of the crowd arrived. Firstly just keeping the feet on the ground. I tell you, the first yard was a major achievement.

Actually when you try that bike you maintain a too slow speed. Too slow means that the gyroforces are not yet in effect. You are thrown out of balance and then you overreact. This happens because trained instinct overrules the brain. I find that riding this bike is similar to backing up with car and trailer.

But I will try again...and again I will not master it (for more than 10 meters).

I thought there were several very profound observations made in that video:

Knowledge is not the same as understanding
Our competence is based on our biases
when we try to eliminate bias, we simply replace it with a new bias.

I liked the engineer's cheerful enthusiasm that flavored all of his communication.

I subscribe to that. I kind-a always knew that but couldn't put the finger onto it.

Now, that will influence my teaching methods. This is the best part of the video for me.

Yes, indeed.

But there is a twist: Left-handed pianists to be might have an advantage with this piano over those left-handed pianists who had to master the traditional one. And concert halls might have to have a second set of pianos and to maintain their playability -- if this idea catches on.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
