I'm starting to think that our robot overlords aren't going to look like Terminators, but more like little quadcopter helicopters. Case in point, first they showed us they can work together to build a tower, and now they're playing the James Bond theme. What will they do next? Besides enslaving humanity, I mean.
Flying robot quadrotors perform the James Bond Theme by playing various instruments including the keyboard, drums and maracas, a cymbal, and the debut of an adapted guitar built from a couch frame. The quadrotors play this "couch guitar" by flying over guitar strings stretched across a couch frame; plucking the strings with a stiff wire attached to the base of the quadrotor. A special microphone attached to the frame records the notes made by the "couch guitar".
These flying quadrotors are completely autonomous, meaning humans are not controlling them; rather they are controlled by a computer programed with instructions to play the instruments.
