Shimon and Haile Play Tunes


Shimon is a second generation project from Georgia tech that can play the marimba with help from Haile, a robotic percussionist. Working on algorithms, Shimon boasts richer sounds and is more interactive by giving visual cues and bouncing its head to the beat. He/she can also analyze harmony, rhythm, and melodies to improvise while playing. We wonder if they have met ASIMO, who would surely like to sit in. You can catch a clip of the two in action here.
