I, for one, welcome our robotic ukulele overlords


It’s unclear the place the UkuRobot got here from and the place it’ll go as soon as it’s performed with humanity however I concern that it’s as much as no good. Take a look at this robotic: small, compact, infinitely complicated. Its fretting system stares at us, gimlet-eyed, whereas the plucking system continues its darkish work on the strings. The system makes use of Lego, motors, and what seems like an Arduino to carry evil songs out of that mini-guitar of dying, the ukulele. The world won’t ever be the identical and, actually, can we deserve it to be?

The UkuRobot can play nearly any track. In these movies it performs two songs, The Godfather theme and Boulevard of Damaged Desires by Inexperienced Day. In the long run the tune this monstrous creation performs doesn’t matter. It is going to pluck out the tip of days, winking stars from the sky as every word cascades out of its sound gap. In the long run we won’t concern the UkuRobot however we are going to obey it. In the long run, all can be misplaced.

You can even watch it play the Requiem for a Dream theme song here. Fairly cool stuff.
