It looks very cool but what is it? Is it a player piano?

Sort of, in a way, I suppose... he spins the crank and makes music with it... Some things are fixed, like percussion, some things he can vary, like musical notes, by pulling various levers. I think he can even change cogs to make it sound different. It is sort of a steam-punk design. But all the music you hear is created by the steel balls (marbles he calls them) which are perfectly timed to hit or drop at specific intervals. 

I think it's like crazy insane.

Its an improved version of this design. He plans to be able to swap some wheels around so he'll/you'll be able to play more than one song.
