Celebrate the dawning of a new decade with the fully revised Guinness World Records 2020. To kick off the ‘20s, we’ve created an electrifying new cover and curated a record-breaking edition packed with thousands of new, updated and classic superlatives, hundreds of never-before-seen images, and a selection of eyeopening photo-composites that put a new spin on record-breaking. Chapters for planet earth, animals, humans, recordology, tech, engineering, sports and more. • A robot section, for both real and scifi, with profiles of the most significant record-breakers, from Robby the Robot from the movie Forbidden Planet (most expensive movie prop sold at auction) to Boston Dynamics’ extraordinary Atlas (most agile humanoid robot). Robotics expert Evan Ackerman leads us through the history of our mechanical cousins, and looks ahead to some of the new developments at the forefront of robot technology. • Viral Sports section: bottle-flipping; Rubik’s Cubing; yoyoing; juggling; footbagging; speed sabering; pogosticking; sports stacking; pool tricking; and parkour.
