If an individual is gifted with a technological mind and serious mathematical skill, they should really use it to better the world. Making ‘Guitar Hero’-playing robots does not fall in the ‘bettering the world’ category.
But that’s what students Chee Lor and Mike Teigen did. Think of the computational know-how that went into this. No, don’t, it’s too depressing. The students didn’t even take the time to make a robot that could play an *actual* guitar. ‘Guitar Hero’-playing robots may be a sign of the end times.
