This would be so much cooler with rulers. You would need to get some old-fashioned school-rulers & cut them, and for best effect an old-school desk... Excellent - please pop a video with audio onto this(?)

What is this for? I find it to be poorly documented, apart from the fact that there is no explanation to what the object in question is, there are no instructions for use.
Haven't you ever twanged a ruler off the edge of a table? This is like that, but with a variety of pitches. I love the idea, but I don't have a spare table to mess up so I could have a sounding board.

It's like a thumb piano. You twang a stick and it sounds like something out of a cartoon sound track. But I don't recommend gluing things to your table -- use C-clamps instead, or glue them to a large board.
I love those ideas that are so urgent to create that they must be bult with what is there ASAP... I will admit I have come across many cool inventions in a similar way (just slapping together some ghetto materials to get a working product)

Damn I love creativity... Long live Instructables!!

Oh, and it reminded me of this cool little diddy, wonder if the sound is similar:
