Toyota’S Violin-Playing Robot Will Soon Play in a Symphony

Toyota is well-known for making cars, but not for making robots, which has really been Honda’s shtick. Toyota has been working on this ‘bot for about three years and finally decided to showcase it at the Shanghai World Expo that’s currently under way. The violin robot is performing daily at the Japanese Pavilion.
