In a musical career that has spanned seven of those 8 1/2 decades, Gary Graffman has experienced everything from entering the prestigious Curtis Institute at the age of seven, the accidental, self-inflicted destruction of his right hand’s dexterity to becoming one of the most prominent educators in the US.

Is this real? 

Does it count as an "instrument?"  Haha.

Possibly real, but of very limited utility.  Getting the note in the right place peering through that black ribbon would be very difficult.  A box of rubber stamps would be more useful.
All totally obsolete once the dot matrix printer became affordable with PC software to drive it, about 1985?

Interesting, but yeah... I think writing it out by hand could be cleaner and faster.  The beams, is what I keep thinking.  You could leave them off with this thing and do all quarter notes, or mostly, and then come back later and draw in the beams.

It's tedious but it's not too hard to learn to write out by hand nearly as clean as print.  You can do it in pencil, possibly larger than normal and than shrink it, and then copy it on a xerox machine to moosh everything a bit.  It can come out looking pretty close to print.   Yes, I'm serious.
