Robots are funny things, where many science fiction movies and books have predicted an apocalyptic battle between man and machine, while others such as Star Wars have robots being either friend or foe, depending on how they’re wired. Well, it is comforting to know that the robot featured here will not rip off your head or shoot a laser beam in your direction the moment it spots you – instead, it intends to send you into a nice sleep with the correct lullaby, as it is a robotic pianist. In fact, the robot is smart enough to listen to itself play, and should it happen to make a mistake (and it has no excuse in saying “I’m human, too!”), it will correct itself and ensure that does not happen again – ever. Sounds like the precursor to the Borg, right? Hopefully it will be able to play much more complex pieces in the future.
