Toyota’s Violin-Playing Robot at Shanghai Expo

Toyota’s reclusive artistic genius, the Violin-Playing Robot (not seen since its unveiling in 2007) is making its second major public appearance at the Shanghai World Expo 2010 as part of the Japanese Pavilion.  Rather than playing the same tune as before, Toyota has reprogrammed the robot to skillfully play a song that is distinctly Chinese.  Videos are starting to crop up from the event, and we have a compilation of the full performance.  Enjoy!
