The Octave Plateau Voyetra synth controller. Saw this on the trade show circuit a LONG time ago. Intended as an interface with the company's brilliant Voyetra synth. Sadly it never made it into production.

Not mine but I've done it. Keith Tuners are amazing if you are patient and willing to dial a guitar in.
Adrian Legg is a master using Keith's.

Zeena Parkins electric harp. I can't remember if Ken Parker made this one or the other one Zeena has used.

It’s just two banjo tuners and a drop D mechanism in the low E.
I’m guessing Keith from the Stones used such a setup before.

They are not named for Keith Richards, and as far as I know he has not been a Keith user. Keith tunes it and goes.

Here's a long read if you care about mechanical gewgaws. As they go, these are a good time. If you're clever you will understand they are not just for banjos. They require careful drilling out for certain string gauges but they make jumping between tunings rather easy. Only downside is they add a bit of weight.

The drop - d tuner on the low e is a Hipshot Drop-D tuner. Does as advertised quite well.
