Robots Should Be Seen and Not Heard?

You know what’s cooler than a robot that can play the violin? A robot that can play the flute. Watch as this anthropomorphic flutist robot owns Flight of the Bumblebee:

Of course, what good is a robot that just sits around and plays music all day? You may as well get an iPod; they take up a lot less room. However, if you’re lonely and just want someone to talk to…

Creepy, right? . . . but kind of neat. This anthropomorphic talking robot models the functional parts of speech–vocal chords, tongue, lips, airway, etc. Of course, in this video he just sounds like the teacher from Peanuts. Wa-wa-wa.

Also, I think that while the little hat on the first guy is jaunty, the glasses on the floating head just make him creepier since he never blinks.
