You just saw an impressive rendition of Flight of the Bumblebee by a robot musician !

The latest version of the Waseda Flutist Robot (the Waseda Flutist No. 4 Refined IV) was presented at the BioRob 2008 in Arizona a month ago.

The ongoing research on this anthropomorphic flutist robot first started at Waseda University 1990.

The robot is more than just a musical gimmick, It is being used to study robot-human interaction, then teach music to pupil and eventually play in a band too!
