Upenn Pr2 Robot is the Loneliest Little One-Man (or One-Robot) Band

I’m a sucker for robots playing musical instruments. But despite the technical skill it took for the team to get a PR2 robot programmed to play both keyboard and drums at the same time, he just seems a little lonely up there on the stage without some other robot companions.

In this video clip, UPenn’s PR2 reads from a MIDI file, and plays his own “special” versions of U2’s With or Without You and Here Comes the Sun by The Beatles.

I think if he were a contestant on America’s Got Talent, he’d probably get X’ed off the stage by the judges. More details on the PR2 one-man band can be found over at Google Code.
