Famouse youtube user and music robot aficionado BD594 did it again – he build an awesome glockenspiel bot. Its remarkable, that he used a systems where one beater is responsible for a set of tones – and not one beater per tone as in similar instruments. This concept has the advantage of beeing much nicer to watch because the instrument has big movements – but the disadvantage that you probably cannot play it live because the latency gets too big.
Our friend Giuseppe Acito builds robots, that control sensors, that control electronics – with lego! His Toa Mata band is a wild mix of 80s synthies, Glockenspiel, self-made drums and oll of them are controlled by lego motors and solenoids. The future of robotic music will be cute!
