Robotic drum "teacher" trains the next Bonham

An MIT researcher has developed a tool for the students learn to play the drums, speeding up the time it takes for the newcomers to get the instrument. The device, a robot arm Grindlay designer Graham calls the “Haptic Guidance System” (or HAGUS), uses a drum stick attached to a series of engines that a user holds while the leadership to beat. A clip holds the arm in the machine to play back pre-recorded pattern – in studies, Grindlay found that the students do not experience with drums, the drum to make 18 percent more effective if the HAGUS. A spokesman from the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics at Stanford says that the work has a “wonderful job” demonstrates the ability of haptic devices to train beginning musicians. So … Can a rock band implement this far behind?
