A robot piano caught on fire whilst playing the “impossible” Black MIDI piano song, ‘Rush E’.
The speaking robot piano named Chopstix attempted to play the “world’s hardest song” but caught on fire in the process.
The Edelweiss piano was created by NASA engineer and YouTube inventor, Mark Rober.
Chopstix’s keys are triggered by solenoid actuation and has full 127 degrees of note velocity
Smoke begins to fill the space whilst the robot performs the song before Rober has to use a fire extinguisher to stop things getting out of control.
The robot piano can also speak English, as it has the same principles as the speaking piano created by composer Peter Ablinger and showcased at the 2009 World Venice Forum.
