These amazing video game instruments have been rigged up to play video game gameplay audio in real time. The instruments are robotically controlled and replicate the actual sounds in the game while they are happening.

This amazing setup is controlled by a system called Raspberry Pis, which uses custom software to control each instrument. The software translates the gameplay audio and instructs the robotic-controlled instruments to play those sounds that most directly replicate the original The realtime translation allows for the gameplay audio to be played at the exact time as it would normally exist in the game itself.

The video clip demonstrates gameplay from Mario 1/2/3, alongside Zelda. Understandably, this is limited to 8 and 16-bit games/audio due to the advanced nature of gameplay soundtracks in more modern games.
