A robot plays the violin – shockingly well

I saw this on reuters tech week and was pretty amazed at how well this robot played the violin. The human like form with precise fingering was really awesome to watch. At the end the show, the way that the robot waved and took a bow also amazed me. This really does tell me that we are moving into the new world where robots will be roaming among us and the movie irobot will not be just a movie but would rather be a reality.

The fact that toyota accomplished this was another shocker as I didn’t know that toyota was involved in robotics. Does this mean I should go out and buy toyota’s stocks hmmm interesting concept. Toyota does plan on improving on the robotics stream and providing services to medical care etc. The future is not too far away.
