"Keyboard xylophone"

And this "Xylano"

Is it obvious that I am off my feet (mainly the left one) with a lot of time on my hands?

I think it doesn't, but.. why not? Some kind of xylophone instead of strings, put dampers in it like a piano, and you would have a unique instrument!


My thoughts exactly!

The Playable LEGO piano has been approved for production and will have 2798 pieces!

We’re going to need a thread when we all build one.

See: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a4e4413f-8488-4551-ac9d-9e7f8c35154e

I can’t wait to order one.

I wouldn't call it playable, with a stool like that! cry

Lego is pretty neat, how about this. It's no piano, but impressive nonetheless:
