Fastech, our South Korean partner specialized in the production of drives and motion controllers, has created an exceptional robot guitar player capable of playing an acoustic guitar.

The robot is controlled by a closed-loop step system, with 6-axis Ezi-SERVO-Plus-R Mini drives connected via RS-485 to stepper motors equipped with encoders.

In the following video the mechatronic guitarist plays Let it be by the Beatles on a 6-string acoustic guitar, without missing a beat!

Perhaps a quartet of robots capable of sounding like the humans of Liverpool has yet to be born, but the result is undoubtedly incredible for precision and accuracy of movements.
