One of the strangest keyboards I've ever seen

I've not done this in a while, but here's a video I found while wandering through the internet.

Leonard Soloman is a comedian, juggler and instrument builder who does one man variety shows. His website (link) has some pretty cool videos of him playing an instrument he calls the Bellowphone, but the instrument I find the most interesting is his Oomphalapompatronium, a somewhat steampunk-looking device. I must admit my immediate reaction was "I want one!". I've watched the video about 5 times now, just to get a sense of what each part is doing. Maybe one day I'll build something like this, when I retire...
