WATCH: 1,007 robots dancing in unison breaks Guinness World Record for, well, that

THE last Guinness World Record for the largest number of robots dancing simultaneously – yes, there is such a record – is 540. But that record has since been smashed by Chinese robotic company Ever Win Company Ltd., who nearly doubled that number at the annual Qingdao Beer Festival in Shandong last week.

The 43.8cm-tall QRC-2 robots danced impressively, showing off their programmed moves in perfect unison. Although a handful of them had to be disqualified after falling over or failing to bust a move, most of the robots successfully completed in the 60-second routine.

Quan Jinyou, chief technology officer of Ever Win told the Guinness World Records that the robots have a specific encryption tech to limit the amount of radio frequency interference from mobile devices nearby.

The previous record of 540 was held by Chinese company UBTECH Robotics Corp., whose bipedal robots performed at the Spring Festival Gala, which is a popular annual event that gets televised nationally during Chinese New Year.
