This robot may look like it's trying to eat a mannequin's face (stupid robot!), but it's actually practicing for a controlled rescue operation. The RoboCue, a rescue 'bot from the Tokyo Fire Department, is designed to locate and safely retrieve victims from disaster sites--specifically bomb sites, but it could be useful for natural disasters as well. It uses ultrasonic sensors and infrared cameras to locate trapped humans, and gently loads the injured person onto a cart to be transported to safety. It even has an onboard oxygen canister.
