Plymouth University’s robot footballers will be bidding to wow audiences with their musical skills after being invited to take part in a unique televisual event.

The Plymouth Humanoids will take their place in a specially convened robot orchestra and perform at the 2014 CHRISTMAS LECTURES ® organised by the Royal Institution.

Produced by Windfall Films and to be broadcast on BBC4 on 29, 30 and 31 December, the lecture series – titled Sparks Will Fly: How to Hack your Home – will explore how three great British inventions (the light bulb, the telephone and the motor) have been transformed in the 21st century.

The robot orchestra will feature in the third of the talks on New Year's Eve, centred around Michael Faraday’s first motor of 1822 and how its creation has led to a series of discoveries with the potential to change the world.
