Ardu McDuino: Bagpipe Playing Robot

by Conner Flynn
Advertisement

I’m always amazed when I see people playing bagpipes. That weird sack with pipes sticking out of it looks so complicated that I can’t believe anyone could master it. I’m just not musically gifted I guess. Perhaps I should buy a chanter. For those of you who don’t know, a chanter is a device that teaches you how to play bagpipes. And guess what, this robot is playing one, and doing a great job at it.

Maker XenonJohn’s robot is called Ardu McDuino for obvious reasons. This bagpipe chanter playing robot has an Arduino Mega 2560 controller and it’s creator used an off the shelf open source design of 3D printed prosthetic hand called Raptor-reloaded. For now, its builder is using his own breath to provide the air flow, but could easily replace that with an air pump. So the robot is all brain, hands, with human lungs.

Check out the video here to see this pair of robot hands play Amazing Grace.

If a robot can learn to play, maybe I can too… Nah. Probably not. I’ll leave it to the robots. Hit the link below for more details on this cool project.
