Teddy Bear Robot to Rescue Troops

I had to triple check the calendar to make sure it wasn't April 1st. But no, it's true. The company VECNA Technologies has developed a rescue robot with a teddy bear head. Well, it vaguely resembles a teddy bear, I guess.

The idea behind the design of the Battlefield Extraction-Assist Robot (BEAR) is that the "friendly appearance" of the cute little head will comfort soldiers as they are being transported. Personally, I'd be a bit creeped out.
