Bass drifts from a garage in Berlin as a robot bobs its head and slides its fingers over guitar strings.

So far the ten-foot-tall robot made from scrap metal can play "Unsung" by Helmet and "Bad" by No Means No.

Its 39-year-old inventor says he'll also teach it "Love Me Tender" by Elvis Presley.

Pressurized air brings the robot to life, and it actually mimes because the music originates from the inventor's keyboard.

The inventor said the contrast between heavy metal and softer music intrigued him.

So far there's only a bass player, but the inventor plans to create an entire robot band.
