One of the more artistic tasks assigned to the Multipurpose Mobile Manipulator is the ability to play piano. The grippers for this task have five fingers each that go up and down to press keys on the keyboard. For now, the robot can only play basic songs, but with enhanced the shoulders and wrist coordination coupled with computer vision to read notes on a music note sheet, playing more complex songs is certainly possible.
