This may be Animusic when it was a garage band.

These machines have come a long way in a relatively short time.

I wonder if they will open up for Z-Machines and go on tour.

I agree, William. Although I do like what they do with the bells carol. Mostly, this is just a demo of what swarming robots can do, in terms of the complexity of their interactions.

Interesting and entertaining but so far real musicians have nothing to fear.

I wish KMel Robotics had more info on their website about how these little guys are built--their earlier site did. In any case, these swarming bots keep getting more sophisticated, and it will be interesting to see what they do next.
