The robot played the role of conductor of the Symphony orchestra Source:

And where will not meet today robots. They are in airports, look out for the elderly, for burgers, work couriers and even down into the depths of the oceans. But what do you say about a robot-conductor, able to cope with a whole Symphony orchestra? The Verdi Theatre, located in the Italian city of Pisa, was just such a concert. And he directed the performance of the robot YuMi, developed by experts of the Swiss company ABB.

Such an extraordinary speech came to see more than 800 people from different countries. Still, not every day on the stage of the famed theatre near the legendary tenor Andrea Bocelli waving the wand-wielding two-handed machine. The concert program called "Breath of hope: from Stradivarius to robots", and already the title intrigued viewers. Among the guests were the Director of the company ABB, which created the robot, YuMi.

The Swiss engineers are very proud of their creation, as his manipulators are very precise and their movement is quite smooth and fast for baton behave exactly the same as in the hands of the conductor. YuMi originally was designed as an industrial robot of the new generation, but at some point the developers realized that he was capable of something more. Maestro Bocelli after the concert, enthusiastically spoke of their impressions:

"to Act on one scene with the robot was really fun. I realized that the robot it is possible to trust the conductor. Imbued with the deepest respect for the engineers who put his hand to this. My sincere congratulations to this team!".
