"KITAKYUSHU, Japan -- This is not a mechanical robot hero in a Japanese comic book but a prototype rescue robot named T522 Enryu that is unveiled at a new year's annual fire brigades' drill in Kitakyushu, southern Japan. Co-developed for the last three years, the 11-foot-tall, about five-ton robot can be operated manually by a man aboard it as well as remote control and lift heavy objects that weigh up to about one ton with its two arms that move like ones of a human. The developers plan to improve the robot to be used in rescue operations at the actual disaster sites by the end of this year. (01/11/04 AP photo)"
