The 2 million yen man

Researchers at the University of Tsukuba in Japan have developed a cybernetic suit that may help older folks, or people with disabilities, to walk and lift heavy objects. This suit, dubbed HAL, for hybrid assistive limb will be unveiled this June at the 2005 World Expo in Aichi, Japan. A descriptive image of HAL 3 (3rd model) can be seen here.

Neat stuff, but did they have to name it Hal? "What are you doing Dave?"
