Semi-retired University of California Santa Cruz professor David Cope writes sets of instructions that enable computers to automatically
generate complete orchestral compositions of any length in a matter of minutes using a kind of formal grammar and lexicon that he's
spent decades refining. This piece was created to sound like a Johan Sebastian Bach composition.

Melomics media has a program that composes music without human intervention, that evolves to improve itself. The music is released
under a creative commons license, so anyone can use it. This piece is OMusic 01 .

And these robots don't write music, they play it - Compressorhead.

A door-opening scenario required teamwork between two FlyCroTug drones.
The first drone grabbed the door handle with a special grappling attachment and then anchored itself to
the smooth glass door. The second drone slipped a hook under the door and then latched onto the nearby
