The Pianist – LEGO Piano Player Kinetic Sculpture


Hey everyone, Jason here today I’m going to show you this custom LEGO
model I’ve built of a hand playing a piano It’s currently being operated by this nine volt motor which I’ll take off for now when the motors isn’t attached it can be operated manually using the crank
on the side so let’s take a closer look at what’s
going on here we’ll start with the hand as you can see each finger is attached to a LEGO technic beam which is connected to a crank shaft that
runs through the base of the stand and as you turn the crank the fingers move up and down next we’ll take a look at the piano
section which is quite reasonably scaled and all the keys move up and down including the black ones the action’s actually reasonably accurate especially considering it’s all constructed out of LEGO eventually I may add some sensors and electronics to produce sound but at the moment it just makes
beautiful LEGO music I have a little model here to show you how the keys work there is a technic axle that runs through the back that all the white keys pivot on also one that all the black keys pivot on each of the keys just rests on one of
these technic springs and underneath each one is also a LEGO rubber tire to provide some
dampening and when you put it all together it’s actually quite simple I guess that’s about it be sure to check out some of the other videos on my channel and if you’d like to see photos of this model or all of the LEGO
models that I’ve made you can check out my photo stream on flickr you can also find instructions for many of
the models I’ve built on my website and also be sure to check out my marble maze project on LEGO CUUSOO and support it if you like it links to all of those can be found in the
description thanks for watching, I hope you enjoyed
it see you next time

  1. Wow you've done a really nice job congrats ! Will you ever release some instructions to build this ? ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I built a piano player and well. it turned out a skeleton hand, i used it to play on my real piano. i am modifying it sometimes. im going with Megalovania as the main song for the skeleton hand, my friends are wowed, it took a while tho,

  4. Hi, this is a great video and it really inspired me. Recently I decided to make a life size piano as I an a Lego builder and musician. So far it's working great and I hope to make a video on it soon. Once again, thank you for making such a great, inspirational video and I think you did a great job getting the scale right.

  5. For me you are THE absolute LEGO Master builder! I know there are many other great builders (big buildings…) but your ideas are so special and amazing and thanks for the instructions… I will give it a try

  6. Something that I find funny – the red nail polish pieces suggest this is a woman's hand, however female pianists do not wear tuxedos when they play the piano (or at any point, as far as I know)

  7. Hey Jason could you do a video of how to build the lego piano and lego hand because I'm doing a project and I would like to build the lego pianist

  8. Every lego creation you make leaves me speechless. This is one of a kind, the hand movement looks so real and the design of the hand in General looks amazing๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  9. You should make a fully working lego piano. It would be more of a keyboard because I'm assuming you would use electronics, but you could certainly create the shape of a grand piano using legos
