You’ll need to wait until the end for RAVI-bot, the robotic sitar developed at the University of Pennsylvania, to start “improvising,” thus conjuring up terrifying mental images of what might happen if other robots get it in their circuitry to follow suit. Ah, well. At least the energies of musically inclined college kids aren’t only going to repeated playings of Guitar Hero, right?
