    Ok, so it isn’t quite a robot, it’s more of an automation system, but the band of 3 robots, the guitarist with 78 fingers, the drummer with 22 arms are planning on releasing an album played entirely through them. I wonder how many takes it’ll be before they perfect it?

    The robotic band are being composed by artist Squarepusher who originally started toying with the idea as simply a creative outlet but soon discovered that equipping the robots with many more appendages gives them the ability to play instruments in a way that no human ever could. The album is set to be a 5 track piece which will no doubt be an interesting listen.
