From BBC News: “The US military is developing a robot with a teddy bear-style head to help carry injured soldiers away from the battlefield. … It is expected to be ready for testing within five years. … The 6ft tall Bear can cross bumpy ground without toppling thanks to a combination of gyroscopes and computer controlled motors to maintain balance. … 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.”

Slashdot comment: “errr: Give the robot a menacing look with red eyes, a gun, 500 pounds of Ammo, and leave the troop home; Also embed an explosive.”
