Marv, The Robotic Vibraphone

Marv was created by three San Francisco Bay Area musicians and engineers. It’s a “MIDI Actuated Robotic Vibraphone” capable of both playing itself, or playing along with a human performer. And it is capable of playing super-duper-crazy-fast.

Marv can play music far more complex than a human player is capable of too, since it can strike any and all keys at once, and damp each key individually. I’ve never seen or heard a robot play so fast in my life.
