Cyberdyne, a Japanese robot making company has made a thought controlled robotic suit that it released yesterday. This robotic exoskeleton suit is in-line with their existing expertise of making robotic limbs, joints, exoskeleton suits and cleaning robots.

Nuclear disaster exoskeleton suit for protection from nuclear radiations

Nuclear disaster can be the worst thing that can happen to a nation and it was sadly demonstrated after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in March 2011. This kick in the back has evoked Cyberdyne, University of Tsukuba spin-off company to develop the Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) exoskeleton suit which protect the on-call teams in nuclear disaster relief operations from harmful radiations and other anomalies that might occur. The exoskeleton is developed under NEDO’s unmanned systems research and development project disaster in association with Chiba Institute of Technology and will be showed off at Japan Robot Week 2012. According to the developers this exoskeleton suit is able to reduce radiation exposure by almost 50% and is loaded with a cooling system to counter the extremely hot conditions that might be encountered.
