Designed to find, pick up and rescue people in harm's way,
the humanoid BEAR robot can do what humans can't: Lift
heavy loads and carry them long distances. Whether on a
battlefield, in a nuclear reactor core, near a toxic chemical
spill, or inside a structurally-compromised building after an
earthquake, the BEAR can rescue those in need as well as
or better than humans can, without risking additional human life.

Some of the BEAR's significant applications lie in assisting
mobility-impaired patients in hospitals with transfers such
as from bed to chair, as well as repositioning patients who
can't move themselves. The BEAR can also help people
with permanent mobility impairments to live a more
independent life

The BEAR bot has three main elements; hydraulic upper
body, mobile platform and dynamic balancing behavior.
The robot should be able to fully stand up by straightening
the tracked units.

Pretty cool looking robot, don't know if I'd trust it enough to
pick me up, it does'nt look very strong, but as they say
'Appearances can be decieving'.
It even has little ears on it's head that make it look like a bear.


Comments, Opinions?

That is a cool looking robot iori. Robotics have come a long way but this one resembles the robot from the movie Short Circuit. I think robotics will be playing an ever increasing role in our lives in the future. This is a really good idea though since it will be able to rescue injured people (in some cases) from situations that would put human rescuers at risk as well.

Nice Find!

This was just on BBC News today.

Bear Robot

Bear robot rescues wounded troops


While the existing prototype slides its arms under its burden like a forklift, future versions will be fitted with manoeuvrable hands to gently scoop up casualties.

The Bear is controlled remotely and has cameras and microphones through which an operator sees and hears.

It can even tackle stairs while carrying a human-sized dummy.




Before too long it'll all be robotic soldiers. Then we'll be in serious trouble. The Government would be able to do anything they want whether the people of that nation opposed the action or not. How could people stand up to their government when they have an army of machines at hand?

good idea, but I'm sure if they decided to actually produce an army of these machines they'd take that into account.
