Our recent story on The Trons prompted Suirt Blurt to write, "Here's another Robot Band Playing The B-52's - Rock Lobster. Similar to the Trons but this band is playing a well known song". This time it's The Bit-52s, a robot band whose creator, bd594, says he was motivated by seeing New Zealand's robot band, The Trons. The Bit-52s includes a variety of new and vintage hardware including a TI99/4a computer for speech synthesis and two HP Scanjet 3C scanners, also used for vocals. A variety of push and pull solenoids actuate the cow bell, cymbals, tambourine, keyboard, and guitar; all controlled by two PIC16F84A microcontrollers through some ULN2803 driver chips.
