1,069 synchronised robots danced their way into the Guinness Book of World Records

Over 1,000 Dobi robots have just danced their way to fame. 

WL Intelligent Technology Co. Ltd (WL Tech) in China has broken the Guinness World Records title for the most robots dancing simultaneously.

Taking place in Guangzhou, Guangdong, a jaw-dropping 1,069 synchronised machines were lined up to dance.

They performed a perfectly choreographed dance routine for the attempt at the record.

It all went down almost perfect, as a few of the robots fell down during the dynamic show, and these had to be deducted from the final record total.

The robots were all programmed with the one group control system.

WL Tech organised the challenge to demonstrate their latest robotic technology.

As well as having the ability to dance, Dobi can talk, do Tai Chi and perform many other human-like actions.

These robots can get up when they fall over, and protect their vital features if they sense that they are falling.

Dobi has 17 servo-joints which move with precision, enabling these robots to perform complex actions with ease.

Dobi can also be controlled by an app and voice command.

Users can also program the robot’s choreography with built-in software. 

Feature overview

  • Humanoid walking.
  • Self-stabilisation system.
  • Passive learning.
  • Multi-synchronous app.
  • Host computer programming.
  • Voice control.

These robots ship all over the world so you can get your very own dancing robot.
