Engineer Linsday Lawlor built this incredible 17-foot tall robotic giraffe named “Rave Raffe” — powered by three 450-amp batteries and a 12hp propane engine. At 1,700 pounds, it features a “pneumatic powered 8-foot neck, 40 strobe lights, 400 LEDs and a killer speaker system”.

The bot walks by moving two of its wheeled legs forward at a time, and then locking them with hydraulic brakes while the other two shuffle ahead
