Rehabilitation robot suit to undergo clinical tests, hopefully help patients walk again
Starting in March, Cyberdyne’s robot HAL suit will undergo clinical tests in ten Japanese hospitals. No, this isn’t the same robot outfit that was used during cleanup efforts after the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Instead, this iteration of HAL has been designed to help accelerate rehabilitation for patients suffering from muscle and nerve diseases.

    Why ‘Cyberdyne’ and ‘HAL’? They could be deliberately trying to freak some people out. Awesome stuff though.

    Am I the only one who is uncomfortable by the use of “Cyberdyne” and “Robot” in the same non-fiction sentence?
