Q-Dance Australia built a robot measuring 24 meters high and 48 meters wide. It was created as a centerpiece for 2013 Defqon.1, an annual music festival held in Australia.
It has 8 x 2 tonne motors that hoist the audio system and has multiple nitro-charged flame positions, activated remotely using a control console.
The robot also boasts architectural and special effects lighting. The eyes are Jarag-led which are mapped to create expressions. There are 10 high-powered laser units and numerous pyrotechnic points with up to 70 mm mortars. It is specially designed using a steam punk style and parts are of recycled materials.

Bre Pettis of MakerBot Industries built a robot that frosted a
cupcake in 52.27 seconds. The intent was for the robot to decorate the
entire top of the cupcake, but due to an unfortunate technical glitch,
it didn’t perform as anticipated.
The feat was performed on June 26, 2009 in New York City during the
taping of a URDB segment on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Dan
Rollman was present as a witness.
