This robot drummer aka “Yellow Drum Machine” basically “uses two microphones / sound sensors on its ‘head’ to search out surfaces suitable for rocking, then uses two sticks to play a beat, record it, and accompany the playback.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

From now on, all your percussive duties can be carried out by this ingenious bot, whose only duty in artificial-life is to roll around, find objects to bang on, and create funky little loops
