Stylophone for $9 and a documentary about it

 Images Stylophonenenen

Yesterday at Restoration Hardware in Berkeley, my son spotted a slew of Stylophones on final sale for $9 (marked down from $29)! For those not hip to the Stylophone sound, the little synthesizer was invented in 1967 and famously used on David Bowie's "Space Oddity" and Kraftwerk's "Pocket Calculator." We grabbed one and have had a great time making strange tweaky noises that delight and annoy the whole family! I don't see Stylophones listed in Restoration's online story anymore, so call your local shop before making the trip. If you miss out, they're $20 here. For more on the Stylophone, here's Brett Domino's documentary short 'Stylophoniac."
