It turns out we might not have to wait until the next The Hobbit movie to see a dragon. This is Tradinno, and is already out there, trying to get us.
Don’t let the stop-motion, animatronics look fool you: this robot dragon is the real thing! The 30-plus feet high fire-breathing monster is the world’s largest walking robot, as measured by the Guinness World Records 2014 team. It was built by Zollner Elektronik AG from Germany, who named it Tradinno. You can see moving and doing dragon things in the video located just below these lines.
