We've reported on David Hanson and his uncanny android heads numerous times in the past. Now the most famous Talking Head of all has partnered with Hanson to create a singing android for a show at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina SofĂ­a in Madrid. David Byrne blogged about the collaboration, describing his trip to the Dallas, Texas area to visit David Hanson's Richardson lab. In addition to describing their project, Byrne also muses on previous singing robots such as HAL's performance of "Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two) in 2001: A Space Odyssey. He also notes that he and David Hanson both ran into similar problems in art school because the schools weren't equipped to handle people with non-traditional interests.
