Dragons Everyone Talks About (3): Record-sized Robot

I meant to finish out my series on dragon news articles with one of the other most regular results, like sports teams or music groups.  However, when I saw an article on a dragon who just made the Guinness Book of World Records 2014, I just had to share.

According to this article by NBC, the dragon in the video above is the world’s largest walking robot. Weighing in at 11 tons, it is 51 feet long with a 40-foot wingspan. It was built to replace an old mechanical dragon in a yearly German folk play.

Way to represent your species in the world record book, dragon!

  1. That’s just incredible! I’ll have to challenge my high-schooler to translate the German for me.
