The Stylophone is a miniature stylus operated synthesizer invented by Brian Jarvis in 1967. David Bowie and Kraftwerk are among the artists who have used the instrument on recordings. In 2007, 32 years after the orginal had stopped being manufactured, the device was re-launched.

Brett Domino performs a medley of 1980s hits on a stylophone.

Molly Lewis used a stylophone in her fantastic cover of Lady Gaga's Poker Face.
