If they keep entertaining us like this, we might be posting LittleBigPlanet videos forever. Fresh from a LittleBigPlanet developer is yet another example of innovation in action.
One of the folks at Media Molecule has crafted a marvelous musical contraption within LittleBigPlanet -- a LittleBigPiano! Kenny from the Media Molecule blog explains how he created the piano, and how he expects to tune his creation in the future (sorry about the pun, I had to).
"Version 1 there uses proximity switches to trigger the keys which in turn makes the piston attached to each key shrink down and tells the sound object to play at the same time. With Version 2 I plan to make the keys trigger by some other means (maybe magnetic key switches?) and have some giant hands which come down and play chords!"
So where is this masterpiece? Right here.

the freedom in this game reminds me of WCIII, the user made content on that game was amazing and this will only be better

Just..... awesome. Sackboy pimp slap is devastating. "Must learn to play jazz tune correctly next time... and where's my money you piece of burlap."

I love how the Henry VIII sackboy is all the time with the head pointing to the roof like the guy who was playing have the hands resting on the waist :P

It's gonna be a great game indeed. I would just like to know one thing: Why hasn't PSU reported the chances that there are to get the LBP beta codes? A handful of websites have already been giving them out and three more are going to on Monday and Tuesday. Why hasn't there been posts about these?

a little off topic but considering this is a PS3 site would it not make sense to post video links that will play ON THE PS3??? i guess this vid sounded alright... lol.

^Agreed. I also apoligize for being off topic but is anyone else unable to download themes off of PSU? Did they take that option out?

@15 - It's due to the lack of support for Flash Player 8 in the PS3 browser. We're working with Viddler to try and make their played backwards compatible.
@16 - We're aware of the issue some users are having with the theme section. This should (hopefully) be fixed soon.
