Posted by murphyy on Mar. 10, 2014

Georgia Tech has created a robotic drumming prosthesis with motors that power two drumsticks. The first stick is controlled both physically by the musicians' arms and electronically using electromyography (EMG) muscle sensors. The other stick listens to the music being played and improvises. The robot that can be attached to amputees, allowing its technology to be embedded into humans.
