SMC's Pneumatone

"Inspired by rock-n-roll.  Designed by world-class engineers."

SMC's Pneumatone is a pneumatically automated machine playing the game Rock Band 3.  The machine plays all four instruments in Rock Band 3 (guitar, bass, drums, and keyboard) and was displayed for the first time at the PackExpo in Las Vegas Sept 2011.  The machine was designed and built by SMC's design engineering team in Indiana.

Take a look at the video links below to see the machine in action:
