Apr 13, 2006 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive

FreeHand Systems used embedded Linux to build an electronic music reader designed to replace paper-based sheet music in practice, lesson, and performance settings. The MusicPad Pro Plus supports annotations, turns pages with screen-taps or an optional footpedal, and can store “thousands” of music charts,… according to the company.

The MusicPad Pro Plus runs a modified MontaVista Linux kernel an a MIPS-based AMD processor. Find out more about this interesting Linux-powered device in our complete device profile:
