Vecna Robotics’ BEAR robot is more than just a novelty, as its “two arms can lift 500 pounds between them, [and is also] capable of dynamically balancing on unfoldable tracked ‘legs.'” Video after the break.

BEAR can lift so much thanks to its GINORMOUS hydraulic backpack, which is conspicuously absent from the animated robots in the video below.
