Well, I hadn't heard of that one. And I'm not all that certain a wierd plastic teddy bear face is all that reassuring on the battlefield, unless you already know this thing is going to carry you out of harm's way. Otherwise it looks like a demented cross between a Terminator and one of those mangled monstrosity's from Sid's house in Toy Story.
Still, impressive bit of tech if they ever get a truly operational one completed. Could save a lot of lives.

Tight doorways and stairs aren't a problem for this Bear.
It just crushes the wounded guy to fit him through!
