Patent law protects this invention after public disclosure while I pursue patent(s). Here is my new invention: my nickname for it is Optimus because it reminds me of the Transformers, but more officially I call it the Electric Double Virginal after the Flemish instruments which were composed of two separate virginals functioning as one instrument together.

Inspired by the accordion, the EDV has no chord buttons so it's much easier for keyboard players to learn. The two 25-note keyboards are midi controllers, so the tones that are available are infinite. Through use of octave buttons, the span from lowest to highest notes is wider than a piano.

That is a very interesting arrangement of Autumn Leaves.
I picked the wrong week to quit smoking pot.

Lol. I wish I had a day off to spend on something as ridiculous and somehow fulfilling.

This one has three keyboards for a total of 111 keys. I'm planning to busk with this in Old Sacramento, hence the attire.
