We all know that robots are going to take over the world and enslave the human race. Well, at least we will be able to listen to some cool tunes as we do the bidding of our greasy overlords.

New Zealand's Nigel Stanford is a musician specializing in Ambient and New Age compositions. For his latest work, Automatica, he spent an entire month in his garage training robotic arms to play instruments. Unlike some of the other "robots playing music" videos you may have seen, this one is not CGI. The robots in the video above are real (as you can see in the clip below).

Of course, it all ends with complete and utter destruction but what else would you expect from evil death machines?

All well and good but they don't smash up the drum kit after the set in a drink and drug fueled rampage. Must do better.

I think we've had quite a few of the possible combinations now...
Humans playing physical instruments
Humans creating music digitally
Humans creating bots to create music digitally
Humans creating bots playing physical instruments.

It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Why make light of death?
