The 'Cabot' Uses Robotic Arms to Strike a Cajon Percussion Instrument

The 'Cabot' is an innovative new drum machine that is designed to make it easier than ever for acoustic guitarists to go about playing music to the rhythm of acoustic beats.

This drumming robot features a trio of arms that are connected to a cajon, a special type of box drum that typically also serves as a chair on top of which a human drummer sits. However, in the case of the Cabot, the arms are used to pound on the box drum, with the rhythms capable of being controlled by way of a companion smartphone app.

Currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign over on Kickstarter, the Cabot drum machine aims to help solo guitarists and other instrumentalists to enhance the authenticity of live performances by making use of acoustic rhythms.
