The TR-808… As a Robot – MR-808

The TR-808… As a Robot. Thanks Zay –

Moritz Simon Geist is really good with wires. He has transformed the famed TR-808, one the first programmable drum machines and main supplier of sounds for rap music, into a full blown robot entitled “MR-808.” The entirely mechanical installation uses robotic arms in conjunction with an Arduino micro-controller and Albeton sequencer — for all your technophiles — allowing the users to remotely control it. The structure also mimics that of a drum machine. Geist intends to use the installation during on stage performances as he hopes to improve the electro-pop genre.
