This robot playing "Flight of the Bumblebee" on the flute is brilliant. It goes without saying that the robot promised and delivered a flawless performance. The only disappointment is in the robot's so-called human-like appearance.
With the long-winded name of "Waseda Flutist No. 4 Refined IV," this chap was unveiled at the BioRob 2008 conference in Arizona two weeks ago. This is science as its best, with the robot's mouth and lungs carefully designed to mimic the expert air control of a professional flutist.
