The idea if melding human flesh and bone with robotic parts is something that more than a few people are looking forward while the rest of us have visions of Terminator dancing in our heads. For those eagerly awaiting for the future to become the present that day may just be getting a lot closer.
It would seem that the Hybrid Assistive Limb suit, otherwise known as HAL, will really be going into production and made available in Japan very soon for around $4,200. So for less than a bargin basement car you will be able to slip on this exoskeleton type suit and see your strength grow tenfold
This is great news for HAL’s target market: Its ability to grant its wearer tenfold strength increases during specific actions could change the lives of people with degenerative muscle diseases, or accident victims who would otherwise need long, difficult rehabilitative therapy to regain basic mobility. And with a five-hour battery life, it could be quite practical for day to day use.
