The News Minute | March 5, 2015 | 7:45 am IST A violin playing robot? Sounds too far fetched? Seth Goldstein worked for several years as an engineer. When he retired, he decided to create 'kinetic sculptures' using technology and has created one that can replicate digital music files and play them on a violin. The robot uses a software to analyse digital files and generate numbers to control the wiring and power the machine's motors - enabling the violin to produce the same notes as were originally played. In an interview to BBC, Seth gives a small demonstration of what the machine is able to do and talks about his future plans. Tweet Follow @thenewsminute
