Caption

Humanoid robot. Android robot known as WABOT-2 playing a musical keyboard. The robot is using its camera eye (upper left) to read a musical score. The visual data obtained from the eye is translated into mechanical motion of WABOT-2's ten fingers and two feet. The robot's fingers can play 15 notes per second, comparable with a skilled keyboard player. It can also accept song requests in spoken Japanese and follow in tune and in rhythm with a human singer. WABOT-2 was created in 1984 by Ichiro Kato of the Humanoid Robotics Lab of Waseda university, Tokyo, Japan.
