Robot HRP-2 follows the guitar and plays the theremin.
Let’s hope that, by the time the robot overlords take over, they’ll have better ears for pitch…
My fellow lab mate, Tatsuhiko Itohara, created a program for HRP-2 to follow his hand while playing the guitar. By watching and listening to the beat, HRP-2 can sync to the sound of an acoustic guitar! What a great job he’s done!
