Watch this real-life robot Lego Rock Band

Guy creates robotic toy band with help of iPad software


On the geek level scale, we've got a pretty good one here. We have Legos, robots, music and iPads all combining to make a great video.

Meet the Toa Mata Band, a set of Lego Bionicle robot toys that are combined with instruments, "drives by Arduino Uno and Clavia NOrdbeat, a MIDI sequencer app for the iPad." The project was created by Guiseppe Acito, as part of the Opificio Sonico site.

Closeups of the band are available here - I'm not sure yet whether the band is ready to book weddings.
