Japan's robotics venture Cyberdyne employees wearing a robot-suit known as HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb) walk on a street in Tokyo

Assistive technology at it's finest. Robotic exoskeleton.

TWINS? Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro (right) sits next to the Geminoid HI-2 robot, a tele-operated robot that looks exactly like himself in Kyoto, Japan. Ishiguro is director of the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory at Osaka University.

My students and I watched a great TED talk on exoskeletons helping the people walk again. Understanding how technology can conform to the human body seems to be the next big break through in Tech! Exsoskeleton armor gives superhuman strength to regular people and paralyzed people the ability walk.
