Do you mean a tiny piano with a normal piano action?

That first option would take some true nano engineering, and would be pretty useless i think. grin

I ment the second option.

"Keyboard xylophone"

And this "Xylano"

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!

I don't know, I could see someone incorporating it into a tiny cooking or baking-a-cake show! 😂😂😂

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:
