This is pretty cool. The Creater Kulja Kugler says in the video on the page that he hopes to make a whole band of junk robots. I find it amazing at what some people come up with these days due to the use of modern computers. I wonder whats next on the horizon?



Junk robot Bass player


A 250kg robot made out of junk is the latest creation of Berlin artist Kulja Kugler.

Named 'A Freakin Bass Player', the musical Frankenstein borne out of scrap metal parts can play two songs.

You have to hand it to the builder for creating art which takes inspiration and skill on that many different levels.

I'm in the US, and I didn't have any trouble viewing it on the BBC website, other than it took about 10 seconds to load.

See ya,

Hmm is it really playing the bass, or is it programed to move its 'fingers' the correct way?

That's not really 'playing' the bass if that's the case.

Nice.


I see he has a couple keyboards there (piano type). Maybe the hands are midi-controlled, so that what you play on the keyboard comes out the bass. That would be cool. I know midi has been used to control other things, so why not? All the animation in the "Animusic" stuff was midi-controlled. In the end, they played music, and that controlled stuff like this:

Once they got their show recorded, actual musicians would no longer be needed to take the show on the road.

As a guitar player, I have to echo the sentiment: DEY TOOOOK URRR JOBSSS !!
