I, for one, welcome out new robot masters…

twomenandawoWhen will people learn? Robots will soon take over the world and, depending on what sci-fi robot apocalypse movie they choose, our fate is sealed. A Japanese robotics company named Cyberdyne (seriously) is leading us down that very path.

You’d think they had seen Terminator or at least heard about it! These guys have made a robot exoskeleton and tested it recently in the streets of Japan. The suit, named HAL5 (no, it won’t open the pod bay doors) was tested on a 30 mile trip. The system weighs 24 pounds, and hopes to give mobility back to those that have either lost the use of their legs or worse.
