This does not sound good – HAL by Cyberdyne

Posted by LiveFor on July 14, 2009

The HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb) suit works by detecting faint bioelectrical signals using pads placed on specific areas of the body. The pads move the HAL suit accordingly. The Cyberdyne website explains: “When a person attempts to move, nerve signals are sent from the brain to the muscles via motoneuron, moving the musculoskeletal system as a consequence. At this moment, very weak biosignals can be detected on the surface of the skin. HAL catches these signals through a sensor attached on the skin of the wearer. Based on the signals obtained, the power unit is controlled to wearer’s daily activities.

That’s right, Japanese scientists at Cyberdyne are making an exoskeleton named after the psychotic computer from 2001: A Space Odyssey that will be super strong.

Robots destroying the world just got one step closer.
