Robot Beatles Will Play Come Together Until the End of Time

By Gary Cutlack on at

Four HUBO robots have been taught how to drum about as good as Ringo ever managed, with accompanying synthesised speech letting them sing along to a Beatles classic in the modern 'auto-tune' style favoured by today's talentless musical youth.

A team of students from the US-based Drexel University's Music and Entertainment Technology Lab came up with the project, which lets the automatons plough on with the song without any form of human interaction. No guitars are involved as even NASA hasn't yet developed robot fingers good enough to play a decent bass line, but the gang does a good enough job of bashing out the cover. [Slashgear]
