So, it is basically reinventing the tone wheel organ.
From what I just read about tone wheel organs... not reinventing but reinventing the WHEEL (literally). Expanding on the idea by spinning other objects than wheels. The method from the video gives us unlimited things to spin and sample. That idea is pretty exciting to me. Makes me want to take my laptop, audio interface and guitar amp (and contact mic.. thank you for bringing that up, Selig) to the nearest metal recycling center and have some fun.
The video method is more like a rompler, (unless you want to try your luck spin the objects and amplifying their sound live). That sounds more time consuming than building your own rompler out of found sounds.

I have fun with a bag of cheap contact microphones (about $2 per mic), which are somewhere between a pickup and a microphone. Gives a different perspective on common sounds. Can turn just about anything you can hit into a drum sample…
Thanks for bringing this up. I'd never heard of contact mics before. That must have been what that removable "pickup" was on a 2nd hand guitar I bought years ago. This is definitely the way to sample electronics around the house (and elsewhere). Fun! I'm ordering some now.
