Beeple posted this video analyzing/documenting/presenting a beyond-awesome computer-generated rhythm machine I so deeply wish was real. Note to self – must figure how to construct laser capable of creating laser sound … anyone? [via CDM]

    Hey Collin,
    A buddy of mine made these drums a couple of years ago and is working on composing with them. They’re made with solenoids and some found objects.
    Here’s two links, one of my daughter playing them and another of the drums themselves.

    Hope you like it!

    How about the drum robot from Final Fantasy X-2 that’s several stories high, acts as a stage, has holographic dancers and uses anti-gravity drums and cymbals flying around it?

    I didn’t just say that out loud did I?

    This is nice but by far, the best drumbot I have seen is the monkey drummer featured in Chris Cunningham’s video for Aphex Twin:

    It’s at least several years old and I still have not seen one that beats it!
