Our robotic overlords have their quirks--the way their heads explode when Captain Kirk confuses their logic, the fact that they've enslaved all mankind to work in their outer space diamond mines, etc.--but it's all forgotten when the robots rock out.
So we're happy that Gibson is releasing a robotic, self tuning guitar. It will be available December 7, and will allow for single touch "standard" tuning as well as allowing for six common altered tunings.
In honor of robots rocking out, TheFeed is proud to present our incomplete list of robots who rock out. It's under the jump. Feel free to add any we forgot in our comment section.
