A walking, fire-breathing dragon robot!
Meet Tradinno, a 30-foot-long, fully actuated dragon robot, created in Germany! He moves his head, his tail, smoke and flame pour from his nostrils, he flexes his wings, blinks, and his pupils expand and contract. And he walks! According to the Guiness Book of World Records, he is now the largest walking robot in existence. Of course it would be a dragon!
To head anyone off at the pass - yes, it doesn't move as quickly as a real animal. It's not easy to make a robot walk on its own, without intervention like the Walking with Dinosaurs creations have! This beast is downright impressive!
You can find more information, pictures, and video here.
I wonder how much a flight to Germany would cost..?
