Robotic Art

Robotic art is a genre of New Media art featuring performing robots. One example is juke_bots, a 2001 robotic performance installation piece featuring two robot arms acting as turntable disk jockeys. The robots are provided with a stack of records which they can place on the turntable and manipulate like real DJs by adjusting the speed, distortion, fragmentation, etc. while the music plays.

Here is a video of the installation:

You can learn more about the work at the official site (it's in German so it must be translated):
