I've asked for one of these little guys for my bday.  Not the original  
though.  Chas here in Austin pointed out I should look at the gakken  
sx150.  Cool piece for sure and yes it does take the stylophone to the  
next level, but I see it's a kit, and I don't do kits, because I have  
trouble seeing and kept burning my nose trying to solder once.  Plus  
the stylophone is cool, you only get that nasty raspy organ voice.   
There is a video of a gal on youtube (someone named Little Boots)  
Playing a song called meddle where about 3/4 way through the song she  
uses a technique with the stylus where the notes have portamento.
