Toyota unveils music-playing robots

TOKYO - Toyota Motor Corp on Thursday unveiled two trumpet-playing robots as part of a project to develop humanoid robots to assist humans and ease possible labor shortages in the future.

One of the 120-cm-tall robots played "When You Wish Upon a Star" with a trumpet. It bowed to the audience and waved its arms to respond to applause following the brief performance...

...Toyota plans to have the robots form a band for the first time at the Aichi Expo starting on March 25, 2005.

You guys better come. We are a fifteen minute walk from the Expo site.
