This is series of photographs (plus a video) of Vietnam’s recently completed $ 85-million Dragon Bridge, which spans the Han River in the port city of Da Nang. The color changing dragon lights up thanks to 15,000 Philips LEDs and can even breath fire and water from its mouth. Not bad. The bridges around here? Pretty boring, plus most have homeless people living underneath of them. “BRIDGE TROLLS.” Okay now you’re just being insensitive.
Hit the jump for a bunch more shots and a video of the bridge breathing fire to the OH’s and AH’s of bystanders.

A bit of silly for your Monday morning: this is a flying, RC-controlled robotic dragon that actually breathes fire and sounds like a monstrous squeal demon as it takes off. The Dragon took a year to build and won Best In Show at the Toledo RC event, Weak Signals.
A modeler named Rick Hamel built the dragon and painted over 600 airbrushed scales on its plastic carapace. Sadly, he did not use it to cover his private parts after hatching it in a funeral pyre a la the Khaleesi
This is a Wiimote-controlled fire-breathing robot pony being put through its paces (turning head, breathing fire) at the recent Detroit Maker’s Faire by its two mohawk’d creators. The pink one clearly stealing the other’s thunder aside, there is absolutely no reason why anybody should ever make a Wii-mote controlled fire-breathing robot pony (link is to a unicorn — MY BAD). As a matter of fact, even thinking about making one should be punishable by law. AND brainwashing. *toothpicking eyelids open* Now hold still, this won’t hurt a bit. *blasting with pepper spray* Haha, I’m not really sure how the whole brainwashing thing works so I’m improvising. Now, repeat after me: robots are the enemy. “MY EEEEEEEEEEEYES!!” That is not what I said. *shaking can*
Hit the jump for the short video of the ‘would not ride into battle’.
