What the world needs is LEGO robots playing Kraftwer. Toa Mata Band is it. Here’s more via Synthopia:
Toa Mata Band is known as the first LEGO® music #robots orchestra made of #Bionicle figures. Each band member is built using Lego Bionicle and Technic pieces. It’s a system of electric motors, rubber bands and pulleys connected to the figures arms that allows them to play an array of different touchable synthesizers, drum machines, smartphones and electronic percussions.
