  1. Would it have been funnier if the robot played “Daisy”?

    OK, now the serious questions: Was is based on motion capture programming? Is there some guy with a remote telemetry rig and another violin behind the curtain? Is there a “violin skill” program that separately interacts with a music reading program? (which would at least be cooler than simple motion capture)

    Robotic interpretive performance isn’t that far off, though. See Silpor Music’s MOR.

I am sure you will be able to build one or to help promote the issue:
