Tradinno Dragon Robot

By -

Tradinno is a giant motorized fire-breathing entertainment dragon built in Germany in 2010. It is featured in the 2014 Guiness records as the world’s largest walking robot. It measures a mammoth 15 feet in height and 51 feet long and tips the scales at 11 tons. The dragon’s 40 feet wing span and gigantic tail are imposing. I’m pretty sure this robot would scare the pants off of DARPA’s Atlas robot!

With radio remote-control Tradinno can walk, flap its leathery looking wings, and send fire from its mouth and nostrils. Amazingly it can round corners and move sideways with 7 degrees of freedom built in each leg. The showbot's 238 sensors enable stability and safety as it performs in the oldest German folk play Drachenstich.
