Moreover, for each instrument, Stanford manipulated the robots slightly to help them play. When the robots play the bass, the one near the body of the instrument is equipped with a guitar pick. When they play the drums, each robot is gripping a drumstick, except for the one playing the bass drum.

In a video that’s going viral online as we speak, you can watch as Stanford plays notes on the bass, keyboard, and sends that information to his band of loyal robots.
