Ever wanted to learn piano? Andante, which comes out of MIT's Tangible Media Lab, is the program to help you learn keystrokes visually.

Animated figures walk, dance, and lumber across the keyboard in telling motions that help you learn not just which keys to strike, but how hard and for what duration to strike them.
