Up until now the coolest use of an iPad we had seen was American artist David Jon Kassan's brilliantly lifelike 'painting' that was created with the brushes app.

But now New Wave rockers Squeeze has taken the title, by using the Apple tablet as a genuine musical instrument during their rendition of 'Pulling Muscles from a Shell', which they performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC.

Keyboardist Stephen Large can be seen with the iPad in his hand throughout the performance but things really get geeky when he kicks into a iPad solo around the 2.30 mark.

The app used by Large was MooCowMusic's Pianist, which is available in the App Store for £2.39.
