This is a crazy drumming robot always looking for a new surface
to start banging on. Kinda like having a little kid around.
Words of the inventor…
“This is a robot I just made.
It was very hard to film, as the camera came in the way for any natural behavior. Anyway, here is what it … usually does:
* Navigate around, collect some data, avoid obstacles, until it
* Finds something “worth playing on” (a single isolated object or a wide flat surface that it can find an angle onto)
* Snakes into place
* Plays some beats on what it have found, and samples this, checking it has a “good sound”
* Based on data collected in the area, and sample just made, then compose a little rhythm, and plays this along with the sample
Why? Well.. I was sitting thinking what I should do for my next robot, what it should do.. Listening to music.. making a rhythm with some robot-parts.. Thought; “Hey, I will make a robot that drives around and plays on stuff” ”
