Yes, someone made a tiny piano app for the MacBook Pro’s TouchBar

The TouchBar Piano app actually includes 128 instruments that can be played and you can see it in action in the video below.

Don’t bother downloading it unless you have the new model because it “does nothing useful on other Macs,” the developer Graham Parks says (via Engadget).

Some of the top apps already offering TouchBar support includes djay Pro, Final Cut Pro X, 1Password and Pixelmator.
