To all you musicians out there on the list, you are now all officially
obsolete. Automated pianos have been around for some time now, but
Toyota has now created a marching and playing robot jazz band, which in
the video clip, with sound of course, they are playing "The Saints". I
suspect they can also play other numbers. The http://www.cbsnews.com
link to that "raw video" says the following.
Toyota has also created a humanoid jazz band, where each droid actually
plays its own instrument with artificial lips and lungs.
Take your droid musicians with you on your next gig and pocket all the
money yourself. No more dealing with temperamental fellow musicians or
no shows. And you will probably get a discount on your next Toyota too!
