The UFOnium is a percussion instrument with twelve notes, made from two, concave pieces of metal (though it can be made from just one). The individual notes are cut and initially tuned, with the final tuning done by placing magnets on the under side of each. The metal in between each note is damped.
This is a rough prototype. Annoyingly the magnets were resonating during filming, though you can get a good idea of how they sound.
