Short info

From the Gadget Warehouse: Another scam - the Electron-Echo Piano is brought to Dick's house by a uniformed driver.

Detailed information

Dick follows up the Bluebird AX3 "Sewing Machine" 2 weeks ago (Episode 455) with this piano.  Dick got another postcard telling him that he had won the mini piano which he could got at a small price, along with a mini piano songbook.
2 comments One of these Electron Echo Mini Piano is still available, on eBay, but this time you know absolutely what you are getting, with detailed photographs (even of the songs contained in the songbook) and dimensions (5 x 9.5 x 0.9 cm).  The songbook is a Christmas package, with music and words for classics such as Jingle Bells, We Wish You A Merry Christmas and Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.  Might make a nice Christmas present!

It may also surprise you to learn that this instrument is still listed online in quite a few people's studio equipment or musical "influences".

Intelligent First Aid Kit

A blind listener Danny Noonan writes in about the Talking First Aid Kit (Episode 454) which Leo at first thought was a little gimmicky.  Danny thinks it would be a great product for blind people if the manufacturer would add tactile indicators for each individual injury kit.

Ustream & Stickam

Dicka and Leo have fun playing with ustream & stickam while recording the shows.
