Robot

Flying robots playing the James Bond theme music. Sounds interesting right?


The last time I watched a robot play music was at the Shanghai World Expo in the Japanese Pavilion that literally took hours to snake into. A humanoid robot played the violin and that was the highlight of the show. Various other augmented reality and android demonstrations fitted around that and the future of Japan was made to seem like a really advanced and different place.

But still, it's not the music that is in any way impressive. It's the feat of programming these mechatronic dream children to coordinate that is amazing and, I think, still a developing art. The Japanese robot goes as far as trying to replicate the subtle humanesque features of musicality but it is still lacking qualities of human made music.
