“A musician has harnessed the power of two Nintendo Wiimotes to become a cyborg percussionist with the robo-band Jazari. His playing of one drum machine can evoke an automated response from another, so that he can go around the drum circle in a beautiful display of human-robot improvisation.”
I see this invention as a brilliant display of human ingenuity, demonstrated through complex machinery. This Robotic Drum Band, is the product of the musician who programmed it. The computer by itself is not the musician, it is in reality a very complex instrument.
Similarly, the supercomputers who can rival, and sometimes beat the best chess minds, are the product of a team of programmers working to algorithmically outwit a brilliant chess player.
Nevertheless, this is a very cool invention.
