MechBass robot jams along to Muse’s Hysteria

Want to feel inadequate compared to a higher-level machine? Click on through, you won't be disappointed. Just jealous

A whole host of machines already exist that can best our puny mortal skills in nearly every category imaginable, but it’s still fun to remind ourselves just how mediocre we are, lest we get too big headed.

The latest mechanical marvel to catch our eye is the MechBass robot – an automated bass machine which can be seen above, happily strumming away to Muse’s Hysteria without missing a beat.

We’re just glad to see it’s using actual guitar picks rather than severed human digits to pluck the strings. Here’s to hoping version 2.0 remains equally as merciful.
