Robots are going to do many things for us in the future, including taking care of old folks and hospital patients. The Robear happens to be such a robot. Developed by Japanese research institute Riken, this robot weighs 390 pounds and provides patients with gentle care. For instance, it can carry people from/to their bed or wheelchair.

The robot has torque and Smart Rubber capacitance-type tactile sensors for gentler movements. It can lift patients without endangering them. The above video shows the Robear robot in action.
