We have seen plenty of exoskeletons being developed over the years designed to support humans and assist them with super strength, the only problem was that none of them were available for sale. Cyberdyne, Japan has now officially launched its Robotic exoskeleton called HAL to the market. The HAL can augment the strength of the person wearing it by ten fold.
Come October, the university-based firm will crank out up to 500 HAL suits every year with a view to helping disabled people, rescue workers and even construction and factory workers. It will cost around £500 for individual users for a month's rent and twice that to medical organizations. Although it's currently available only in Japan, Cyberdyne has already opened an EU office in Amsterdam.
