ABSTRACT
The article offers a look at several technologies intended to ensure the survival of a sick or injured person. The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) solicited a special notice related to its program entitled Fracture Putty. In response, a humanoid robot dubbed the Bear was designed by Vecna Technologies. On the other hand, doctor Dennis Goupil of Biocure has developed a spray-on liquid bandage that is much like epoxy cement. INSET: Unmanned Medevac 'Bus'.
