Even so, you have to admit the tech driving this jazzy robot is pretty amazing. At least they'll be able to carry a tune as we march into the slave pits, amiright?
As you'll see in the live performance, Shimon, a robotic marimba player, actively listens to human pianist Guy Hoffman, and then tries to predict complementary notes and themes, and match them to the performance. Dare I say it, at the risk of sounding like I'm brown nosing the robots (which I totally am), the tune sounds decent. [Guy Hoffman - Thanks, Guy! Yeah, it's the same guy!]
