Japanese industrial robots turn drummers

  • Washington, July 31: Four industrials robots in Japan gave performances at the traditional taiko drumming competition.
  • The robots were special guests at the 400 year-old Kokura Gion Daiko Festival in Kitakyushu, famous for traditional drumming competitions.
  • Yaskawa Electric worked with organizers for four months to teach the robots the nuances of taiko. 
  • The use of robots at the festival was a novelty.
  • I'm really elated by this new use of robots.
  • I think these Japanese Yaskawa robots would be great accompanying one of my favourite turntablists and scratch artists.
