Trumpeter Robot by TOYOTA

Share on LinkedIn


JAPAN Style has introduced different types of Japanese robots such as singing robot, humanlike robot, and jumping robot.

Just like other robot, this TOYOTA robot has a special talent, which is playing the trumpet!




Just let you know, it’s neither a trumpeter who wears a robot suit and plays the instrument nor a robot pretending to play the trumpet along with pre-recorded sound.

This robot has “lips” and a “lung”. To play the trumpet, the “lung” pumps out air, and the “lips” vibrate to produce the sound.

I was surprised that a robot can make such organic tone, I mean, to me it doesn’t sound artificially at all.


Here is another song.




I like how it opens its arm during the performance, and waves the hand to audiences when it finished playing.



This is JAPAN Style!
