Japanese Robot Suit

Let's begin with a quote from Yoshiyuki Sankai, professor at Tsukuba University: "Humans may be able to mutate into supermen in the near future." Let's put that up one more time, just for good measure. "Humans may be able to mutate into supermen in the near future."

Yes, folks, it's a 33-pound supersuit that turns an average man into a superman and puts the exo-citement back into exoskeleton. Unfortunately, it's named HAL-5, which leads us to wonder: will it be humans who are morphing into superhumans or machines who are morphing us into steel-belted cyborgs with a soft, chewy center.
