Robot Quadrotors Performs The Classic 'James Bond' Theme

Flying robot quadrotors perform the James Bond Theme by playing various instruments including the keyboard, drums and maracas, a cymbal, and the debut of an adapted guitar built from a couch frame. The quadrotors play this "couch guitar" by flying over guitar strings stretched across a couch frame; plucking the strings with a stiff wire attached to the base of the quadrotor. A special microphone attached to the frame records the notes made by the "couch guitar".

These flying quadrotors are completely autonomous, meaning humans are not controlling them; rather they are controlled by a computer programed with instructions to play the instruments.


Haha! Just stumbled across this! I've been teaching the James bond theme through my guitar lessons in brighton for ages now, so it is nice to hear a different take on this! Maybe this is the future of music... at least the Robots will never play a dud note! Hopefully not though eh?! Nice blog mate, keep it up :)
