Here be dragons
Every year, Guinness World Records comes out with a list of global superlatives. Aside from the extremes of human physiology, endurance, and other records, "Guinness World Records 2014" released Thursday, contains some eye-popping hardware feats. Not least is the world's largest walking robot.
Tradinno the dragon was built by Germany's Zollner Elektronik to showcase its high-tech prowess. At 51 feet long and 30 feet tall, it's an epic mechatronic machine, equipped with sensors, sophisticated hydraulics, and jets of fire. Here it performs in the folk play "Drachenstich" in the Bavarian town of Furth im Wald.
