Humanoid Robots Play Music

Mish Moved to MishTalk.Com Click to Visit.

Perhaps giving away my age, I have never heard of the band "Motorhead" nor have I heard of their song "Ace of Spades".

I have now. Popular Science reports Humanoid Robots Play Motorhead's Ace of Spades.

I love robots. I love Motorhead. And so it stands to reason that I would love robots playing Motorhead. But I haven't actually been able to test that theory -- until now, thanks to some roboticists in Berlin, Germany.

Having a four-armed drummer is pretty metal, and I would love to see what it can do with some Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy or Flo Mounier hijinks.

Hand movements on the guitar players were quite limited but the drummer was in full swing.

How long will it be before humanoids are boxing or humanoid teams play basketball?
