The Yellow Drum Machine

My love for robots continues with this little one called Yellow Drum Machine. Built and programmed by Fritsl, is a musical robot that gets funky with its surroundings. Check out the video… and make sure you have your speakers on:

Basically, the robot navigates around avoiding obstacles until it finds something ‘worth playing on’ (a single isolated object or a wide flat surface that it can find an angle onto) and stands in front of it. Based on the objects surface, the robot composes a little rhythm, and plays it on its surface.

I want one!
