intelbot1 Animusics Pipe Dream Made Real

By now most of you have probably seen or heard some version of Animusic’s digitally animated musical concerts, specifically, their “Pipe Dream” video which has over 1.1 million views on YouTube. Well, Intel went ahead and made a real-world version of that concert! Taking 90 days to go from concept to completion, the robot “musicians” use 2,300 balls to produce 120 unique notes on what Intel describes as “off-the-shelf hardware” running “existing software” – meaning for $160k you too could build this in your garage! Compare and contrast the two videos after the jump.
