If you’ll recall, Tsukuba University professor Yoshiyuki Sankai designed a robotic suit called HAL-5 a few years ago. Production of this handicap-overcomer began back in 2006,
and as promised, manufacturer Cyberdyne (not to be confused with
Cyberdyne Systems, best known for its genocidal Skynet AI and army of
Terminator robots) is finally ready to crank it out in large numbers.
Starting this Friday, HAL will be available for rent in Japan at the
modest rate of $2,200 per month. Sankai hopes it will prove useful to
the elderly and folks with disabilities by providing super-strength
mechanical assistance when they send brain signals to move their limbs.
HAL may be used for good but it won’t be used for awesome; Sankai has
turned down military-types who’ve expressed interest.
