The Violobot - A Violin Playing Machine

Classical Lovers - prepare to be shocked. I am about to introduce you to the World's First Violobot, pictured, quite unmistakably, on the left. No, it's not a machine for torturing naughty, misbehaving Violins, the Violobot is a Machine that plays the violin, or at least makes an attempt to. I can't really say much for the results, except that I think the inventor needs to put in a little bit more work - that smooth string legato and vibrato just doesn't seem to be there. Then again, it is built from rummaged computer printer cartridges, so it ain't exactly state of the art.

Nice to know the Arts Council of Canada is spending its money well. Be truly dumbfounded here.
