The robot that plays a piano faster than humans
Matteo Suzzi, an Italian inventor, has developed a robot with 19 fingers, which not only signifies an important step forward in the design of robots, but gives the machine an unmatchable ability on the piano.
The robot, which is known as Teotronico, is able to play the piano at a speed that no other human can match.
"His left hand covers the lower notes, the right hand covers the melodic line and he has an extra finger on the left hand," said Mr Suzzi.
"He is a great pianist because he has almost double the number of fingers that a human has and he can provide greater pressure to the keys."
Teotronico is not only versatile on the piano – it can sing recorded files that are stored on his computer system.
Mr Suzzi said: "He's performed at a number of private parties and is a hit with the guests. We're hoping he can revolutionise the music industry."
It took four years for the inventor to create Teotronico, who is being closely watched by the music industry.
