Meet Virtuoso – The Worlds First Self-Playing Violin August 27, 2006

Posted by ionicflux in Inventions.

Everyday, advancement in technology is slowly replacing the need for humans themselves to perform tasks. People that used to station at carpark entrances are now replaced by machines. And heaven forbid, robots performing unassisted heart surgery. The latest invention that is also replacing a human’s task is Virtuoso. It is an amazing violin that is capable of playing by itself. But instead of creating a sophisticated robotic hand to control the pitch, the inventor used an electromagnetic system to achieve the same results. So what we’ll see is the bow bowing magically all by itself in mid-air. Getting one for your home will surely amaze every guest in the house. But not without a hefty price tag of course. A set will cause a damage of $17,500 to your bank account.
