The HAL exoskeleton from Cyberdyne. 

This week Cyberdyne unveiled a robotic exoskeleton called HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb) that allows its wearer to carry superhuman loads while shielding them from radiation. With the Fukushima nuclear disaster still fresh in Japan’s national memory, the research team designed HAL to aid workers in dismantling the damaged power plant. The most incredible part is that the suit can be controlled by brainwaves! A network of sensors monitors electric signals coming from the user’s brain and uses them to activate the robot’s limbs in unison with the worker’s, allowing them to move without supporting the suit’s weight. As such, the 130-pound suit is barely noticeable to those wearing it.


Tony Stark: “Tell you what. Throw a little hotrod red in there.” Jarvis: “Yes, that should help you keep a low profile.”

The future!

    Never name any robot HAL. EVER. Nononononono. NO.

    I’d just like to point out that it may be a bad idea to name something robotic/technologic HAL….bad things happen.
