2431Hyperloop concept gets unveiled, GTA V set for PC and Pixar take wraps off new movie – News in world recordsElon Musk, the entrepreneur behind the launch of PayPal, Tesla and SpaceX, has lifted the covers off the Hyperloop, a new transport concept linking Los Angeles and San Francisco that could hurtle passengers through a tube around the US at near-supersonic speeds.Musk envisions using magnets and fans to shoot capsules floating on a cushion of air through a long tube.Should the Hyperloop be ever built, a trip on it between the two cities would take around 30 minutes.The highest speed recorded by a train on a national rail network (rather than a dedicated test track) is 574.8 km/h (357.2 mi/h), by a French SNCF modified version of the TGV on 3 April 2007. The peak speed was achieved between the Meuse and Champagne-Ardenne stations on the LGV Est high-speed rail line in eastern France. FACT: The line has cut journey times between Beijing and Tianjin from 70 minutes to 30 minutes.Although not officially announced by developers Rockstar, gamers have been given the clearest indication yet that Grand Theft Auto 5 will also be coming to PC this year.The news comes from a somewhat unlikely source - Chris Evenden, senior IR director at graphics card manufacturers Nvidia.While the much anticipated game has long been confirmed for release in September on Xbox 360 and PS3, Rockstar have been tight lipped about it getting a release for Windows systems.Speaking at the company's most recent earnings call, Evenden put Rockstar's next open-world gangster opus as among the top games coming to PC later this year.With more than 106 million copies of Grand Theft Auto games sold from its 1997 debut to August 2012, the GTA videogame series holds the Guinness World Records title for best-selling action-adventure videogame series.Pixar have unveiled the first details for the next film from Up director Pete Docter, called Inside Out.Set for release in 2015, the film is set in the mind of an 11-year-old girl called Riley, with the characters representing different emotions inside her brain.Actors lending their voices to the film include Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Lewis Black and Phyllis Smith.Having earned a total of $7.8 billion (£5 billion) worldwide from the 13 feature films they’ve produced since 1995, Pixar films have grossed an average of $601,707,296 (£384,385,106) per title, setting a record for the highest average box-office gross for a film studio.
2432Has Andrew Cotton surfed the biggest wave of all time? Watch videoWinter Storm Brigid has created up some of the most challenging conditions ever seen in Europe for surfers over the past few weeks.One daredevil rider who looks to have taken full advantage of the big waves created by the weather system is United Kingdom surfer Andrew Cotton, with claims he may have set a new record for Largest wave surfed (unlimited) last Sunday.The 34-year-old is estimated to have reached a height of 24.3m (80ft) while riding a monster wave following a storm in Nazare, Portugal.If the height is confirmed, it would beat the current record of 23.77 m (78 feet) set by Andrew’s friend Garrett MacNamara in the same region in November 2011.Andrew was towed into position by a jet ski driven by US surfer Garrett during his potentially history making ride, holding his position for about 10 seconds before the wave consumed"It was massive that morning and I knew there was potential to catch potentially record-breaking waves," Cotton told Sky News."As I turned around I looked at it and it was obviously a big wave, but I didn't realise how big it was going to be."There was obviously a bout of nerves."Hailing from Braunton in North Devon, "Cotty" is no stranger to riding big waves, having notched up huge rides at Mullaghmore Head, Ireland which earned him a nomination for Biggest Wave at the 2012 Billabong XXL Awards.Andrew travels the world in search of waves like the one he caught on Sunday."There is a lot of commitment and I'm lucky I've got an understanding wife and family," he added."It's a dream to ride these waves, for me."The really exciting thing about surfing is that you never know when there's going to be a bigger wave – it's not like mountain climbing where you can climb the highest mountain."Sunday’s events come after Andrew negotiated a similarly huge wave at the same location back in October during the "St. Jude's Storm" swell which had already put him contention for the world record.The above video of the record attempt was shot by Jose Pedro Gomes as an entry in the Ride of the Year category of the 2014 Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards.A definitive ruling on whether the feat set a new world record will be made in March.
2433Coffee-powered truck sets speed recordUK engineer and conservationist Martin Bacon took the notion of having a caffeine boost to a whole new level last month after setting a new world record for the fastest coffee-powered vehicle.Driving his 'Bean Machine' - a Ford P100 pick-up he has converted by installing a gassifier at the back of the truck - the 42-year-old managed to drive at an average speed of 105.451 km/h (65.536 mph) during a run at Woodford Airfield in Stockport, Greater Manchester. The modification allows the vehicle to make use of coffee chaff pellets - the waste product from coffee production. These are heated in a charcoal fire where they break down into carbon monoxide and hydrogen. The generated gas is then used to power the truck's regular petrol engine. Starting the car is more of an art than simply turning an ignition key. Martin fires up the boiler using kindling and a fire-lighter and then, having loaded the coffee pellets, has to wait for the gas pressure to build up. Conditions on the day of the attempt were pretty chilly, but that didn't stop With the engine coaxed into a smooth purr, and we were ready to start the challenge on a chilly morning on the runway of a disused aerodrome near Stockport (UK). The first run was very good and was a lot quicker that the minimum of 100 km/h.However, he needed to do a second run in the opposite direction within one hour to meet the stringent guidelines set by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS.His second run was somewhat slower, forcing Martin into some on-the-road tinkering to optimise the engine performance. Following the adjustments, Martin was able to meet the challenge and set a new world record. Martin was backed by the Co-op food stores to mark their 10th anniversary of supporting the selling of Fairtrade coffee in their stores.Speaking after the attempt, Martin said: 'We're thrilled to have taken the speed record for the fastest car of this kind. 'This Coffee Car has been years in the making, although any car can run on gasification.'In fact, during the Second World War, there were over 100,000 vehicles in the UK that ran on gasification, including cars, buses and delivery vehicles.'At the beginning of the 20th century, there were over 900,000 vehicles running on gasifiers across the world.'video
2434USTA, Andy Murray's mom celebrate World Tennis Day with new recordWhen it came to celebrating this year's World Tennis Day, the United States Tennis Association (USTA) knew how to do so in style.For an occasion around which 67 countries hosted special events - including a match at Madison Square Garden between world No. 2 Novak Djokovic and No. 6 Andy Murray - the USTA decided to make history. Bringing together 406 children from local youth organizations, the group took to the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York, and set the record for the largest tennis lesson.Helping out the cause was a special guest who knows a thing or two about tennis lessons. Judy Murray, mother of reigning Wimbledon champion Andy, was on hand with the goal of inspiring the children and families present to play tennis. For Judy Murray, it also marked a return to the site of where she saw her son win the 2012 US Open at Flushing Meadows.“Today was a fantastic event and I am delighted to be a part of it,” Murray (below) said. “Anything with getting children involved by playing tennis is great. Tennis is a sport for life – it is a sport you can play with your family and friends, as well as being active."The USTA said it plans to use the event as a launching pad for thousands of other events nationwide throughout March, designed to encourage families and children of all ages and skill levels to try tennis.A day after the attempt, the USTA held a special presentation recognizing the record prior to the BNP Paribas Showdown at Madison Square Garden. The event featured Murray (Andy, not Judy!) facing Djokovic, and a sibling doubles matchup between the Bryan brothers, Bob and Mike, and the McEnroe brothers, John and Patrick.“It was a special way to kick-off the thousands of USTA Play Events through the country in March, as well as being part of a record-setting event,” said Dave Haggerty, Chairman, CEO and President of the USTA. “Your first experience is very important and these events are an opportunity to get involved in the sport.”For the latest on all things world record, visit Guinness World Records on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and our brand-new Instagram.

2436Arby's launches new sandwich with record-long TV commercialRestaurant chain Arby's wanted people to fully understand the painstakingly dedicated process behind its newest offering, The Smokehouse Brisket sandwich.Brisket, of course, is famous for requiring a long, slow cook for better taste. And so Arby's decided the best way to get its message across was to show it -- all of it.And so, on May 24, it broke the record for the longest television commercial ever aired. Since the speciality sandwich is slow smoked for 13 hours, Arby ran its ad for a record-breaking 13 hr 5 min 11 sec. To demonstrate the smoking process in its entirety, Arby's piloted the ad, simply featuring their brisket smoking in a smoker for the full 780 minutes. You can watch the entire thing here, should you have a spare half of a day.videoAs per the official record guidelines, the spot needed to air on a licensed television channel in a normal broadcast slot. The ad found its home on My9 KBJR-TV in Duluth, Minnesota, USA, airing on May 24-25."We are thrilled to have 'smoked' a Guinness World Record," said Rob Lynch, Brand President & Chief Marketing Officer of Arby's Restaurant Group, Inc. "If there was ever a doubt that we actually pit smoke our brisket for 13 hours over real hickory wood, this ad makes it pretty mouth-wateringly clear that we do."Arby's aired a digital encore to the broadcast at dedicated website soon after the TV spot, featuring $20,000 in barbecue-themed prize giveaways.The worldwide debut included a "meat feed" with social commentary from Arby's at various smoking milestones, meat facts, and prize announcements, including thirteen $1,300 cash prizes, smokers, barbecue books and cooking utensils.The previous record holder was NIVEA, which aired a 60-minute spot on Switzerland's Star TV to celebrate the brand's 100th anniversary in December 2011."The decision to make a 13-hour commercial was a step forward in our journey to surprise and delight our guests and fans," Lynch added. "What better way to show meat lovers our unique 13 hours smoking process in all its glory."There are plenty of records your group or company can attempt, and they don't need to last as long as Arby's 13-hour TV spot.

2437PepsiCo and Lowe's Market arrange nearly 72,000 12-packs of Pepsi for display recordEverywhere you look this summer, people will most likely seek refreshment with an ice-cold soda.And if you happen to look in El Paso, Texas, Pepsi is king.Lowe's Market of El Paso decided to make a summer splash in its store by hosting and constructing a massive display of PepsiCo products. In fact, the final result of nearly 72,000 12-packs of various Pepsi varieties resulted in the world record being broken for the largest packaged product display.Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Cherry Pepsi, and more -- they all made it into the final display, which took up an entire wall and aisle space of the market. The record-breaking measurement came in at precisely 472.58 m³ (16,689 ft³).To be exact, a total of 71,595 packages were arranged by a team requiring 25 hours to set up the display. That amounts to 859,140 cans of Pepsi within the arrangement. The total weight of the packages clocked in at 337,739 kg (744,588 lb).This quick video shot by local news stations KFOX14 gives a little more depth to the gigantic display.videoIt marks the eighth time this record has been broken since its inception in 1999. Previous holders include Procter & Gamble Gulf, Tide Egypt, and Coca-Cola Denmark. Lowe's Market and PepsiCo broke the 9-month-old mark of 450.77 m³ (15,918.79 ft³) by Horizon Hýzlý Tüketim Ürünleri Pazarlama Satýþ ve Tic. A.Þ, a Turkish company that arranged 11,642 packages of toilet paper.This achievement adds El Paso to a distinct international list: all eight times the record has been set, it's fallen in a different country.Representatives from Lowe's expect the packages to not last more than a few weeks, a hunch borne out by the rush of customers to purchase from the record-breaking display instantly after it was opened to the public."Everybody went right for the display," Guinness World Records adjudicator Michael Empric said. "They told me they wanted to get their hands 'on one of the Pepsis that broke the record.'"Have nearly a million soda cans lying around, or a completely different record idea for your organization?

Please note that for the purpose of our records, we differentiate street dance from "hip-hop" dance. The style of dance that must be performed for the 'largest street dance' is the popular dance form often exhibited on contemporary pop or R&B music videos. Hip-hop is instead specifically characterised by popping, locking and breaking.

This excludes non-human figures used as toys, human figures not traditionally used as children toys, and branded/licensed toys that are not regarded as "traditional", to focus on dolls originally designed as toys for children and which specifically reference the folklore, traditions or cultural history of a particular area or group of people - for example, Topsy-Turvy dolls, Matryoshka dolls, Kokeshi dolls).The record is for the greatest number of unique items in a private collection.
