A new Guinness record has been set by more than 1,300 robots in Italy. According to PTI reports, robots were dancing simultaneously. There were almost 1,372 tiny humanoids and they synced many different moves to music. Many technology companies have been setting up armies of dancing robots since 2016. And they are fighting it out for the Guinness World Records title for ‘most robots dancing simultaneously’. Last year, in August 1,069 ‘Dobi’ machines set a record in China. But now the number has been raised to 1,372.
The record-breaking attempt was organised in Italy using the Alpha 1S robot which is just under 40 cm tall and made of aluminium alloy with a plastic coating. The humanoids were built by Chinese company UBTECH which also engineered the first record-breaking dance-off in 2016.
To make the record official, Guinness World Records adjudicator Lorenzo Veltri attended the shoot. He ensured that all the machines were dancing at the same time and discounting any that fell during the attempt. According to Guinness, the Alpha 1S robot is extraordinarily flexible which allows it to perform many different dance moves in time to the music.
