Arduino-Controlled Robot Makes Drumbeats With Forks

Vito Caiata is an Italian maker living in Berlin. He recently got his Arduino to talk to his computer sound card via MIDI, then connected a pull-type solenoid to bang on an improvised drum. He started off with a wooden fork as the drumstick, then kept adding to the project. Now it has two drumsticks plus a hi-hat! [via Hackaday]

    I know some drummers who will be very upset at being replaced so easily!
