Dancing Robots Set World Record.

It’s Sunday and we are resting from political fights and discussions and instead turning to a new World Record set by a group in China.

WL Intelligent Technology Co. Ltd in China has just 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 and performed a perfectly choreographed dance routine for the attempt.

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

The robots – which are named ‘Dobi’ – were all programmed via one group control system.

One of the robots that fell can be seen around the 36 second mark. We aren’t sure whether he fell or was being a non-conformist and free-styling, but his actions don’t count in the tally for the record.

Now when these things can dance like Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers, then we’ll be impressed.

(Just kidding. Sorta.)

This Just Makes Us Laugh.

Some YouTuber named Garren Lazar has taken songs from the 70’s and 80’s and mixed them with video from Charles Schultz’s Peanuts animated cartoons.

This is the version of “Come Sail Away” by Styx.

No one, no group, no genre is safe from this guy. Lucy Van Pelt “singing” Heart’s “Baraccuda.” Linus “singing” Chicago’s “25 Or 6 To 4.” The Carpenters, Ray Parker Jr (“Ghostbusters,”) Pink Floyd, Lynyrd Skynyrd (“Freebird” and “Sweet Home Alabama,”) Pink Floyd, the B-52’s and even Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” are all there.

We can’t figure out if this is brilliant or that Lazar has too much time on his hands, but it’s makes us laugh.

And after this week, we needed a good laugh.

Fixing An Error Code On A Cannon Printer.

We’ve all been there.

Right before a job that you need to finish or are in the middle of printing, your printer dies and shows some error code.

This is how one gentleman fixed the error code on a Cannon printer.

“To try and resolve the U052 error, please remove and then reseat all of the ink tanks and print head in the unit. Next, please turn off the printer, unplug the power cord from the back and leave it out for at least 10 minutes, then plug it back in and turn it back on.”

BONUS VIDEO BECAUSE IT’S FRIDAY!

As a bonus, one of the things that is really hard to get right as an animator or when doing CGI is characters walking. It takes a lot of skill and patience to not only get the gait right, but the distance covered in each step looking correct.

The Smell Of The Grill.

The best part about this cartoon is that the artist gets the grill right. He shows a charcoal grill – not a wimpy ridiculous outdoor stove run by propane. If you want to cook with gas, just stay indoors.

A KitKat Katapult.

This is an ad for KitKat candy bars, but it is really a play on assembling furniture. (Ikea anyone?)

Everybody loves putting furniture together, said no one ever. Watch how Allen and Harold take on an epic journey to assemble a Katapult, as they twist, turn and turn again throughout the day.

“I’ve never seen a clock, mate!”

Funny stuff.

Well, They Could Have Texted Too.

This rings so true to us.
