This is a 9x slit drum in a keyboard configuration. When you press each key, a hammer strikes a tongue that vibrates and sends sound out through the front holes. Tongues come untuned so you can customize the key of the instrument.

If a design drops on Thingaverse, but nobody makes it, did it really happen?

can someone print one of these and show a video of it working?

You have to change the total mass that is vibrating on the tongue. If the tongues are trimmed too short, they won't vibrate enough so you may need to drill holes first to see how much of an effect that has before completely trimming the total length.

Do you simply change the length of each tongue to have a different note?

Yes, although it needs some work. Someone can remix it to make it easier to tune because as it is, it's not as easy as one might think.
