Thanks to animation films, we have seen Pandas doing Kung Fu, a traditional martial art form (who doesn’t love Po?). But have you ever seen robots doing Kung Fu? Well, if you haven’t, then here it is. On Friday (September 15), as many as 300 robots got together in action getting their movements in perfect coordination. Yes, along with martial arts masters, the robots were seen kicking and gesturing at the same time at the opening ceremony of the sixth TRCC China Robot Creative Design Competition in Harbin. The performance kicked off the three-day skill competition in Harbin, the provincial capital of northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province.

Earlier, at a talent show ‘Amazing China’, 108 robots wowed audiences and judges by performing Chinese Kung Fu, Tai Chi and dancing to the soundtrack of the Jet Li movie Fearless.

China also holds the Guinness World Records title for the most robots dancing simultaneously. In August, 1069 robots in Guangzhou, Guangdong, were lined up to perform a perfectly choreographed dance routine.
