Big, Bigger, Biggest – The Robot Elephant (Video)

Image00749
We thought the Land Walker robot was gigantic, but one of our readers told us that it doesn’t hold a candle to the giant elephant robot that paraded through the streets of Nantes, France last year. Luckily, it was captured on video so all of us can share in the fun.


The 30 foot tall robot elephant was built especially as a part of a Jules Verne centennial celebration. Verne, the author of classics like Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, and Journey to the Centre of the Earth, would have been absolutely delighted.

The robot not only walked through the streets amazing the crowds, it actually sprayed water on them from its trunk!
