BEAR Will Be Going to War
The Vecna Technologies Cambridge Research Laboratory near Boston recently revealed its BEAR (Battlefield Extraction-Assist Robot.) Funded by Congress for over a million big ones, the bot can lift, carry, and put down humans in dangerous situations. It can also manage other heavy objects up to 500 lbs. over rough terrain and even stairs. The BEAR can travel on its "belly" for miles should the need arise. Vecna is also planning to make versions for healthcare, disaster rescue, and contaminated areas. Check out Robot Magazine for more details.
