Description
The Kawlabo Spiron EM-5100 is an electronic synthesizer modeled on the traditional accordion instrument. One of the strangest looking Japanese electronic musical instruments, it was made in very limited quantities by Kawatchi Kenkyusho Co Ltd.

Much like an accordion, The Spiron is played positioned over the chest with the left hand playing the bass button and the right hand playing the keyboard. Additionally, the Spiron has a special sensor that can detect the tilting of the device by the player to emulate the similar movement changes of an accordion.

The Kawlabo Spiron EM-5100 is probably best known for the image of John Lennon playing on on a trip to Japan in 1970s.
