Programming drums is nothing new in metal. It's been done countless times, whether you know it or not, and it'll be done countless times more going into the future. Though Huawei Technologies and KUKA showed off the next step in drumming at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona this year – a robot drummer. It's completely wireless, and while I'm sure this technology has a billion other uses than "kickass drummer," it's pretty cool!
Soon we'll be able to have robot drummers that can produce a human feel to drums… and then guitarists, and vocalists, and metal will be created entirely by things made of metal. Which is metal, right?
