Guinness video celebrates robot record breaker

Robots Take Over Record Breaking – Guinness World Records

Guinness World Records has created a video showing robots performing incredible feats.

Titled “Robots take over record breaking,” the video (above) shows a series of smart devices created by teams from around the world, although Japan, a country with a long-standing reputation in robotics technology, is widely used in robotics technology. clip.

The video, posted on Monday, begins with a record of “most robots dancing simultaneously,” with more than 1,300 of them performing various movements perfectly synchronized with each other.

It also includes footage of Toyota’s talented basketball robot, which entered the record books a few years ago for “most consecutive basketball free throws by a humanoid robot (assisted),” firing 2,020 shots in 6.5 hours without breaking a sweat ( or develop anything). type of mechanical error). Japan also holds the record for “most jumps made by a robot in one minute”, with the bird-like machine crossing a rope swing 106 times in 60 seconds.

Look at the table tennis robot (Japan again), and another robot capable of solving a Rubik’s Cube in the blink of an eye.

The Guinness World Records video also features footage of “the fastest 100 meters completed by a bipedal robot,” with just one pair of robot legs completing the course in 24.73 seconds — a time that sounds rather casual when you consider current human records. for the same distance is 9.58 seconds.

The “largest humanoid vehicle” is also present, standing at 27 feet and 9 inches (8.46 meters), as well as “the fastest swimming by a fish robot,” featuring an aquatic contraption that covers a distance of 165 feet (50 meters). in 22.16 seconds. Honda’s defunct Asimo robot also emerged as the “fastest running humanoid robot” at 5.5 mph (9 kph).

A tremendous amount of work has gone into each of these robots, and their achievements in the record books inspire teams of engineers to develop increasingly complex technologies that enhance the capabilities of their impressive creations. But you can be sure that in just a few years from now, most—if not all—of these records will have been well and truly broken.
