Orchestra conductors watch out - here's a robot who can do the job

Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli has performed with some of music’s greatest artists, but his latest collaboration requires a little more coding.

YuMi, a dual-armed robot, led Bocelli and the Lucca Philharmonic Orchestra during an Italian robotics festival Tuesday, according the Associated Press.

The robot gracefully guided its baton for a group of subordinate humans to follow its instruction to Giuseppe Verdi's "La Donna e Mobile." The orchestra's human conductor praised the musically gifted bot, but said it is still not able to stop should the orchestra make a mistake.
