  1. For a robot, that’s some really loose timing. I enjoyed watching it more than I did listening to it.

    1. I believe it was somewhat for the novelty and less to show off the actual composition. Nice to see all that hardware in action.

  2. Lol!! 😀 i know this was meant as a serious project and obviously needed much gear and prep work. But it has a bit of humor. Thanks! i needed a good laff. Cool stuff. Very inspiring. Maybe the next one can have those robots from Beck’s “Hell Yes” video dancing to the music. Good work!
