    It's actually not an innovation. It's been done before, a little over a hundred years  ago. I saw a pic of one in a museum somewhere, just can't remember where.

    It didn't quite catch on then.

    I too have seen a picture of a circular keyboard. It is in one of my piano reference books I will have to hunt down. Pedal pianos go way back as well. Straight strung grands are around such as the Altenburg Grand that I think was made by Cunningham in Philadelphia
