2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY – Watch Flying Robots Perform the Theme Song
Here’s an awesome video that fans of Stanley Kubrick‘s 2001: A Space Odyssey will love. Watch as flying Hexrotor robots give us a new take on the film’s theme song. Watch the video above and lets us know what you think.
2001: A Space Odyssey is a classic sci-fi film that every geek needs to watch. Kubrick is a genius, but the creators of this video are also pretty darn clever. If you haven’t seen this film, be sure to check it out after you watch the video.
KMel Robotics presents a team of flying robots that have taken up new instruments to play some fresh songs. The hexrotors create music in ways never seen before, like playing a custom single string guitar hooked up to an electric guitar amp. Drums are hit using a deconstructed piano action. And there are bells. Lots of bells.
Many thanks to Lockheed Martin and Intel Corporation for their support.
Here’s the original theme song for 2001 A Space Odyssey for comparison:
