Z-Machines Presents Music For Robots

Posted by on February 21, 2014

The Z-Machines, a three-robot band spawned by Japanese roboticists, aren’t your typical musicians.

For one, they’re robots. That’s the big one. But for another, the guitarist has 78 fingers and the drummer has 22 arms.

On April 8, 2014, they’ll release their first EP, in collaboration with recording artist Squarepusher. This is no doubt some kind of ploy to distract us as they prepare for the upcoming robot apocalypse. If you want a taste of their music, though, just give the video up there a listen.

Seriously, a drummer with 22 arms. We don’t stand a chance.
