Hardware: P.E.A.R.T. -- Machine Drummer

Pneumatic and Electronic Actuated RoboT is senior design project created by a bunch of students from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. The idea is to create a hardware system that can be interfaced to a computer to play pre-recorded track elements.

The machine allows you to interface the robot to the USB of your computer, and play midi tracks off it. As a drummer myself, I must say that I'm quite frightened and appalled at this :-)

Both Engadget and Slashdot covered it, too.
