    I'm very disappointed. I clicked on this thread expecting to see a violin playing a robot, as the title suggests. Instead, it seems to be the reverse!

    Re: Violin playing robot

    Is it just me, or does giving robots musical abilities seem like a bad idea? Are we looking at a Terminator-style rebellion here to replace live musicians?

    A few years ago there was the robot trumpeter:

    Then there was the robot percussionist:

    Then the Robot playing sax:

    The robot guitar tuner:

    And now the robot violinist:

    We know that the robots are growing in strength. Confrontation is inevitable. The musical robots could be deploying secret weapons systems and temperaments as we post. Robots also have "superhuman" abilities such as the ability to perform some of the Listening Room's works with ease.

    For the sake of the survival of musicians, something must be done!

    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    Well. I don't think he looks very realistic, they messed up on his eyes or something.























    So i gave him a makeover to fix all that.

    If robots can play instruments, maybe we can build even more robots and send them to concerts as listeners?
