Humanoid Robots Play Motorhead’s Ace of Spades

It's Friday, so let's indulge in some completely nerdulent head-banging.

I love robots. I love Motorhead. And so it stands to reason that I would love robots playing Motorhead. But I haven’t actually been able to test that theory — until now, thanks to some roboticists in Berlin, Germany.

Having a four-armed drummer is pretty metal, and I would love to see what it can do with some Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy or Flo Mounier hijinks. That said, I think I am most amused by the robo-Lemmy’s, uh, shall we say, limited finger motion. A perfect illustration of how rock’n’roll doesn’t have to be complicated to kick some ass.
