Robot Quadrotors Perform James Bond Theme
Youtube ^ | 2-28-12 | U of Penn

Flying robot quadrotors perform the James Bond Theme by playing various instruments including the keyboard, drums and maracas, a cymbal, and the debut of an adapted guitar built from a couch frame. The quadrotors play this "couch guitar" by flying over guitar strings stretched across a couch frame; plucking the strings with a stiff wire attached to the base of the quadrotor. A special microphone attached to the frame records the notes made by the "couch guitar".

Last thing that I have seen as cool as that was a Chevy Volt blowing up.

Engineering students make the coolest useless stuff. Here’s a video of some engineering guys that made a stringless “laser guitar” for some project:
