BEAR (Battlefield Extraction and Retrieval Robot) was designed specifically to “find, pick up and rescue people in harm’s way”. Basically, a humanoid robot that can do what humans can’t: “lift heavy loads and carry them long distances”. Video after the jump.
The BEAR is currently in proof-of-concept development stage. A prototype of the BEAR robot has been built and outfitted with a powerful torso and arms, together with a Segway-like dynamic balancing system on two wheels
