Watch these Lego Bionicle toy robots make music with drum machines, xylophones, synthesizers and other makeshift instruments. This is the Toa Mata Band, a project by sound designer Giuseppe Acito.
Each member is controlled by an Arduino Uno which is hooked up to an iPad running the MIDI sequencer app Nord Beat. Acito either gets them to play a pre-programmed song or they can do a live show with Acito controlling the MIDI sequencer in real-time.
