NAGOYA, Japan – This robot is probably better at playing the violin than you.

Toyota’s violin-playing robot debuted at the Japan Pavilion during the Shanghai Expo in 2010. 

It has been performing at the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology in Nagoya since June 2014.

The bipedal walking “partner robot” is equipped with 17 joints and is able to do delicate arm and finger movements, just like a human.

It even tilts its head while performing at the museum five times a day.
