Xylophone Machine

Just had this idea, and in a flurry of building, I have a prototype. It's a knex machine that plays the xylophone. Right now, it can only play five notes eight times. I am hoping to increase this. In the photo, the machine is rigged to play the opening of the Imperial March :D

That is damn sexy. And i'm a percussionist. But I'm not about to bring my (dusty) knex to band.
This is the type of thing that redeems the knexers.

Some of them, anyway.
What about these 2?

This?
Yep. I like to see the knex projects that aren't Yet Another Gun.
- Seconded Finally there's a good use for knex
what makes this better?(no offence to the machine or anything)
its actually built to do a task not like firing a gun there have been inventors to make several, robot-like machines that could make drawings with a a very similar process
