This robotic band has just the right amount of drums. [Liat] and his colleagues fit a group of Darbuka drums with a pair of servo-driven mallets. We’re quite surprised that the servo motors achieve such a successful strike and rebound without dampening the vibrations of the drum head. This is more often accomplished with solenoids because of their quick response and relative strength.
Questa band sarà messa in mostra alla biennale internazionale di Bat Yam sull’urbanistica, e sarà azionata da un sistema combinato a energia solare ed eolica.
