Robot DJs - Don't Just Request Electropop

If you're lucky enough to have a couple of robot arms lying around, but don't fancy setting them up as sword-wielding sentries, then how about letting them make sweet music?  With far more stamina than ever the most coked-up DJ, this pair of Kuko industrial robots have a selection of vinyl and a bad scratching habit to blur the lines between performance art installations and music.

It looks like control of the platter-spinning pair is handled by an operator with cross-fader control of each channel and two circles of buttons to select different records.  Check out the videos after the cut to see – and hear – just how good the music is.
