    Perhaps this has already been brought to the forum, but I just stumbled across this on youtube. Trumpet playing robots!? What faster way is there to kill the soul of music? Kinda makes you want a pocket-sized sledgehammer when you visit the Toyota factory in Japan.

    Obviously a recording. How did they create a flexible lip-reed that can judge tuning, vibration and harmonic slots?



    Edit: Well I'll be damned, they did.

    I just wonder how much they cost? I bet a full trumpet section wound cost more than most if not all of the Philharmonics in the county.

    I don't know if I'm missing sarcasm by the other posters, but that just looks like a guy in a robot suit to me. I don't think it's even possible for robots to play the trumpet. No, I think this is just like the marching nutcrackers in Disneyland.

    Ok so it is the real deal, but I'm not threatened by these robots- they need special music to play. Besides, they seem like a lot of fun! If any robots have soul, these are the ones.

    When they can sight read from a fake book or improvise, then I'll start to worry.
