Although self-proclaimed "artists" may find the very idea offensive, Teotronico is a keyboard-playing robot that delivers Mozart and Bach with the same grandeur and emotional investment as the best concerto pianists.
Similar in ways to the story of Pinocchio, Teotronico was designed and built by his "father," the Italian robot engineer Matteo Suzzi. The pianist android is the product of four long years of research and almost $4,000 in investments, yet the result is astounding. 19 fingers give Teotronico the ability to play faster, more complicated riffs and his robust sensory system allows the robot to gauge the reactions of audience members, adjusting the speed and pitch of each note accordingly. The kicker is that this wide-eyed humanoid will talk to the crowd and even entertain them with witty banter as he plays and sings!
