Re: Has a Dell set aside for me....
That does seem to be a copy of the Blue Man group tubes, the sound being made by the column of air of the differening sizes of pipes. Here's a cool example of a marimba piece where the sound is coming from the differeing size rosewood bars and amplified by the tubes underneath the wood bars.

I think this guy is actually copying the Blue Man Group.. and built his own RimbaTubes.

Sometimes conferences can be droll - so this is a great way to make things interesting. 

An air guitar competition would have been cooler.

So I looked up Marimba and found it described here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marimba as a wooden percussion instrument. That would make it closely related to the xylophone. Substituting plastic for wood, undoubtedly changes the sound a great deal.

Has a Dell set aside for me....
That's a memorable way to promote hardware... and maybe it'll go viral now....
