What's silver and shiny and can play some mean drums using its four arms? None other than StickBoy, which is also known as the mohawked robot who can really kill it behind a drum set.

Created by Frank Barns of Robocross Machinesa couple of years ago, StickBoy is still undoubtedly the best drummer bot the world has ever seen. Now some of you might be thinking, A robot that plays the drums? What a waste of time and tech!

Now see here. A lot of university labs and other institutions that have teamed up with DARPA have come up with all sorts of weird and cool (not to mention creepy) bots like the cyborg roachesand the AlphaDog, so it seems fitting that some other people out there balance it out by building robots just for fun and for the heck of it all.

Hit play on the video above to watch StickBoy drumming up a storm in the video above and prepare to be amazed. Enjoy!
