MEET TRADINNO, THE WORLD’S LARGEST WALKING ROBOT Date: 11/24/2014 Views: 0
Everyone meet Tradinno, the world’s largest walking robot, according to Guinness World Records. And if you’re wondering just how large is large, the “dragon” is 27 feet tall (8.2 meters) and 56 feet long (approximately 17 meters).
The robot was built by German company ZollnerElektronik AG between 2007 and 2010 and besides walking it can also breathe fire through its mouth and nostrils over five feet. Tradinno is currently located in an amusement park near Berlin, but it often makes appearances at different parades and festivals across Germany, especially during medieval themed events, where “knights” try and “slay” it.
For those interested in tech specs, the dragon weights a total of 11 tons and is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine that produces 140-hp. It has more than 250 sensors, 1,000 feet of hydraulic lines and 4,000 feet of electric wire, being able to carry 11 liters of gas (for the fire breathing part) and 80 liters of stage blood. Oh, and due to its massive size, a special transporter had to be built.
