    49 keyboard for all music lovers


    I started my career as a railway engineer in 1978 and I assembled the world's first turntable/traverser. I always wonder why piano keyboards are so bulky and expensive until one day in Shimla I saw a train winding up a spiral track to the mountain top and "Eureka" I screamed....I built my first spiral metallophon but I could not find a factory to manufacture the product for me. Eventually I located a toy maker who agreed to realise my dream at an extremely low minimum order quantity. The spiral piano (HK$299 each or HK$100 for bulk purchase) will be a great companion to those who have difficulties of so many sharps and flats on the 5-line staff sheet music notations. It will also be a user-friendly musical instrument to the visually-impaired and the physically-challenged.
