Japanese firm Kawada is no stranger to industrial robots (and dancing ones, at that). Now they've gone and built what we're affectionately dubbing the Scapegoat Robot, designed to do dangerous work on construction sites and undertake other risky ventures. The HRP-3P robot is agile enough to walk on icy surfaces as well as under heavy rainfall. At 160cm tall and 65kg, the battery-powered robot takes remote-controlled and preprogrammed commands in the line of duty, and we imagine good ol' Scapegoat would take a bullet for ya, too.
