As well as being musical instruments, pianos often need to be considered as pieces of furniture. If you’re thinking about buying one then you might want to know how it will look in your home first, this is where the Clavinova Space app from Yamaha, can help you. It uses Augmented Reality (AR) and ultra-realistic 3D imaging via your smartphone to show you how a Yamaha Clavinova piano will appear in your home.

After downloading the Clavinova Space app, select your desired piano model, then you need to find a location in your house that’s brightly lit with plenty of empty floor space. You move your phone slowly left and right to scan the area. There is a helpful ‘glass’ piano that appears which allows you to make fine adjustments to the position of the piano. When you’re happy with the chosen spot simply press the screen and like magic, your piano will appear!
You can switch between various premium models and colours in the Clavinova range to find the perfect fit for your home decor, and you can use AR to view the piano from any angle that you like. You can also read product specifications, watch tutorial videos, and even hear demonstrations of the pianos being played! A really nice feature is that you can take pictures of your chosen piano and share them via messenger apps or social media.
Beware, it’s very tempting to reach out and try to play the pianos! Seriously though, the technology in the Clavinova Space app actually works really well and gives you a very good impression of how the various models would look in your home. One crucial bit of advice is to not rely 100% on the rendered image for sizing. I would still recommend that you look up the piano’s official dimensions and then get your tape measure out to make sure it’ll fit in your space.
You might find watching our demonstration, comparison, and review videos helpful. We cover the Yamaha Clavinova range quite extensively as well as other digital pianos and keyboards. You can watch them all on ePianosTV by clicking here.
