    Default Cyberconversion: it's starting!

    Remember the naff piping on early Cybermen during Patricks era?



    It was supposed to be an exoskeleton strength enhancer.

    Well the Japanese have only gone and made one - and it looks even naffer than cheap budget BBC props ...





    Perhaps you need your emotions removed for fear of going out dressed like that?

    The day for you to strap yourself into a robotic exoskeleton and fight crime the way your normally flabby limbs would never have let you has come! Cyberdyne, the Japanese company responsible for the HAL (hybrid assistive limb) prototype robot suit, is starting rentals this week. The price for being superhuman: about $2,200.

    The 22 pound battery-operated system is belted to your waist and captures brain signals through sensors attached to your skin. HAL supposedly works effortlessly with your muscles, increasing your strength up to 10 times the norm without turning you all jolty and robot-like. Think Iron Man instead of Robocop. If the price is a little too much for you, you can rent a cheaper option= one leg for $1,460.

    But really, can you put a price on looking this good?

    increasing your strength up to 10 times the norm
    Is that because it weighs 22 pounds and gives your legs a fantastic workout?
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!
