Wow, Robot drummer plays solos and goes solo

Finally you can give your drummer his walking papers. Let us be honest, he was the weak link of the band, right? From now on, all your percussion duties can be carried out by this ingenious bot, whose sole task and artificial-life is approximately roll, to find objects bang, and create some funky ‘loop. Fundamentally, the Yellow Drum Machine uses two microphones / sound sensors on its “head” to search for areas suitable for rocking, then uses two sticks to play a beat, records, and accompany playback. The end result is a surprisingly human – and wiggle-inducing – pace. Check the video after the break to see how this robot gets nasty.
