Need a Lift? Try HAL - Hybrid Assistive Limb

Does your body need an upgrade? Then the robot suit HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb), will do the job in a single, step-motored reboot.

Japanese manufacturer Cyberdyne Inc plans to make 500 this year. HAL’s inventor Yoshiyuki Sankai reckons the suit can, “multiply human strength by a factor of two to ten”. It also makes you look like a gladiator from Tron.

(HAL should not to be confused with the homicidal computer company in The Terminator)
