Dead Body Collecting Robot

I wonder what happens to the bodies? Can the robot digest them?

I already saw this on an existing robotics site, it is for grabbing people out of burning and/or collapsed buildings. It was inspired by a child's slide.

Ok, I just had a horrible vision of this thing being a woodchipper. O_O

Brrrrr.

@Corrine: I had the picture of Santa yelling that outloud in my head from Robot Chicken.

I just can't help but wonder...exactly what scenario this would have application for? Single bodies are normally handled by a forensics crew. Multiple bodies are generally handled the same way. And what's more, people tend to bristle over such a callous handling of the dead, even if the bodies are people they don't know.

About the only thing I think this would be used by is in the exhuming of mass graves. And even then, only under extreme circumstances.

Perhaps this would be more appropriate for cleaning up roadkill. It'd certainly get a workout on your average Texas highway... :-/
