I don’t know who is advising this company on choosing names. I wonder if they’re being duped, or if they are knowingly picking these names in a tongue-in-cheek sort of way. At least these units are directly controlled by people. That is, until they figure out how to take over our minds…

Cyberdyne Corporation of Japan, in conjunction with Daiwa House, has begun mass production of a cybernetic bodysuit that augments body movement and increases user strength by up to tenfold.

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.
