Cyberdyne Robot Suits from Japan

Cyberdyne, based in Tsukuba, northeast of Tokyo, has been making robot suits for hospitals, welfare and other facilities in Japan since 2010, usually designed to help elderly / handicapped people walk or move their arms. A new version has been designed for the full body - for quadriplegic people.

The normal limb version, the Hybrid Assistive Limb, or HAL, has nothing to do with the HAL - the evil supercomputer in Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey"

No word yet on whether they are planning to make a version called the T100 for the military.
