Robotic bassoon

This is a very strange thing, a bassoon with all the tone holes operated by solenoids, so it can be played by a computer. And yes, the wheels are powered too, so it can move and dance around on stage. Rather than have a robotic mouth, they replace the reed with a speaker. Unfortunately I can't find any recordings or videos, to hear how it sounds.
