A Trumpet Playing Robot!

Check it out! I Didn’t think it was real at first, but then after looking into it a bit found out it is. It’s Toyota’s trumpet playing robot!

This would be a great video to show a class to fill a few minutes in a music class.

Things you could discuss:

  • whether it was real or not,
  • how it would have to work, given the embouchure required to play the trumpet
  • What other instruments a robot could potentially play

You could also get the students to find other examples of robots performing music!
