Robots add new arsenal in their war against humanity: singing!

Way back in March I wrote about the HRP-4C robot that walks and talks. At CEATEC today I saw this thing in person. And now it sings!

An upgraded version of the VOCALOID, with an added conversation function and a new voice, help to make movement of the HRP-4C a bit more sophisticated. And as you can see here, a humanoid robot with human-like singing with an accompanying performance is sure to attract much attention.

VOCALOID is Yamaha’s proprietary vocal-processing technology developed for the manufacture of desktop music.
