Xylobot, The Monome-Controlled Robotic Xyophone

This is a short demo of the Xylobot, a robotic xylophone created for Berlin Music Hackday, held on September 18-20 at Radialsystem V.

A custom Java app receives MIDI data from the step sequencer and controls the Arduino over a serial connection. The board then triggers the servos to hit on the xylophone.

The whole construction was built in under 24 hours and is mostly made of hot glue and wood.

Xylobot was created by Ramsey Arnaoot & Robert Böhnke.
