Stylophone – modern update to old instrument
Looks like a 40-year old musical gadget has been given a modern facelift, and is now known as the Stylophone for obvious reasons.
You tap the electronic keys with the integral stylus to make funky noises – now with additional Classic, Synth and Bass sounds, – and maybe you can produce some musical hits using this retro kit as the likes of Kraftwerk, Erasure, Orbital, Marilyn Manson, They Might Be Giants, and White Stripes have done in the past. You can play solo, or plug in your iPod/MP3 player and play along to your favourite tunes, and even add some vibrato enhancement to really annoy anyone foolish enough to be listening to you. It may have been invented in 1967, but 40 years on this re-invention is bound to be another hit.
The Stylophone retails for £14.99 and makes an affordable gift this holiday season for the music fan in your home.
