It walks, has wings, breathes fire and it now holds a world record.  This 51-foot (4.5 meters) robotic dragon named “Tradinno” was awarded the 2014 Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Walking Robot. German’s Zollner Elecktronik AG conceived and built the 11-ton dragon to scare festival goers at the Drachenstich (“Slaying of the Dragon”), a traditional folk play held every August in Bavaria for the past 500 years. The impressive trailer by the company shows the complex engineering process and the dramatic results.
