Searching for a song on your smartphone but don’t know the name or artist? Now you can simply clap or tap out the tune and this mini robot will analyze your phone’s music library and play the song that best matches the beats. The gadget called Shimi was created by Gil Weinberg, Director from the Georgia Tech’s Center for Music Technology.
