Violin playing robot from Toyota

As far as we know Toyota has been a car manufacturer for a really long time and they had nothing to do with robotics, but in fact the pictured violin playing robot has been under development for quite some time. The running robot from Toyota was great but this time Toyota has something different to offer.

After three years of development this robot was presented to the public at the Shanghai World Expo. At the moment this robot can only play violin with aplomb but it still does an amazing job. And even if this robot cannot be compared to the actual violin players over the worlds it’s pretty amazing how capable he is when it comes to playing. Besides that this robots plays excellent for a machine it also tries to act an actual violin player while on stage. It really feels like you’re having your own personal violinist with this robot but for now this robot could only be used for attracting customers and for presentations.
