Engineered Arts electric humanoid robot arm

The video below, recently uploaded by Engineered Arts in Cornwall, shows an amazing feat of engineering skill. There are so many parts working in unison to produce a wonderfully fluid motion of the robot arm.

It immediately made me think of the conductor of an orchestra, such as Vladimir Ashkenazy (who is also one of the world’s greatest pianists). I wonder if RoboThespian could be shown how to conduct an orchestra when fitted with this new arm?
