While watching this i wondered what if one could program the robots to "feel good" say perhaps by allowing them to release an energy boost for themselves if they played a piece of music correctly or completing other tasks correctly then you could essentially have perfectionist robot junkies. What say you?

If the robots are actually getting that music to come from the instruments, I'd say the degree of dexterity and fine motor control is impressive. Still, they must have been designed specifically to play one instrument. I doubt if the same robots can swap instruments, juggle bowling pins or eat with chop sticks.

I doubt if the robots are capable of jammin' with a jazz ensemble. Improvization and following another player's lead probably ain't their forte.

yeah thats my thoughts exactly,as amazing as it is to watch most robots could be programmed to do that every 10 or so minutes.
when it starts a jam sandwich on it's own is when we have to worry


nice video

If we humans of today were to send this robot back to a violin concert from like the 1700's would they not think this was an alien creature? So what if the aliens people see today are just highly advanced robots from our human future?

Yeah, my logical self says that I shouldn't be scared, but seeing any inanimate object doing anything human-like is always freaky...

The day robots or AI starts "feeling good" is the day I start my campaign of techno genocide.

Orchestra string instruments would be very hard for anything other than a person to do well though. Robots could probably manage to do other instruments though pretty well
