Fire-breathing dragon named world's largest walking robot (videos)

Robot Dragon

If you’re going to make a walking robot to break records and draw crowds, you might as well make it a dragon.

The “Tradinno” project by Zollner was recently named in the Guinness World Records 2014 as the largest walking robot. At 11 tons, 51 feet long and with a 40-foot wingspan, the decade-old project is now getting the appropriate level of recognition. It takes a 2-liter turbo diesel engine to make it move and a plethora of cables, hydraulic lines, axles, and sensors to give it life-like movements.

The remote controlled dragon even breathes fire through its nostrils and mouth.

Check out these two videos of the monster in action.
