Cyberdyne To Start Mass-producing Exoskeletons

For $2,000 a month, you can be Iron Man too

Since the days of The Centurions, we have yearned for robotic exoskeletons that will enhance our abilities beyond our wildest dreams. That day is finally here. Professor Yoshiyuki Sankai of Tsukuba University has developed a Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) that will let you augment your strength to up to twice your natural abilities.


The suit isn't up for sale, but will be rented out for around $2,000 (Rs 96,000) a month in Japan. There will also be a one-legged version, which will cost less, but also be less fun.
