I'm not sure how I feel about this.... I think it plays better than me.
The robot makes the technique look easy, however it does not play with feeling. So that is the one advantage I have over it.

LOL It only "plays better than you" (or anyone) in the same sense that one of those musical greeting cards or an old fashioned player piano does.
Since the violin is basically attached to it's hand, it probably can't shift or do a slide. It's fingers are rigid in relation to each other, and so it couldn't play a lot of the bits that a human can. If you watch how it accomplishes vibrato, that is also kind of interesting, but not as a human would do it.
Cute bit of robotics/automation, but not actually very impressive musically.
You have lots of advantages over such a machine, actually. From adaptability to..
Remember a certain scene in "Wizard of Oz", perhaps? "Oil... can..."
