Coolest Musical Instrument Ever!

The Ukrainian band Brunettes Shoot Blondes have released a pretty catchy song called "Houston" - and used an amazing musical instrument.

From their YouTube channel, the video/instrument was described as:

"The band brought a broken, vintage grand piano to life, by reengineering it into a hybrid, containing 20 instruments in it. The musicians came up with an idea of making a true analog apparatus which could play different instruments nested inside the rim just by playing the keys. So when pressing a key, the piano hammers beat a marimba, tambourine, cymbals or even castanets. There are also special mechanical devices that allow for the playing of cello, violins and organ."

I'm not sure I could build one of these... but I want one! Check out the song below - and watch this thing in action!
