Japaneese Exoskeleton HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb)

An exoskeleton is an "assist-robot", something like an additional skeleton that is not inside, but outside of the human body. With that skeleton you are able for example to weight lifts, that are much heavier, than you could usually lift. Though this robot-suit is also often discussed as a helper or disables people or people who have less strength after weeks in bed or so.

The command signals from the brain are transmitted to the muscles through the motor neurons, and we can detect such faint bio-electrical signals on the surface of the skin, and these signals are calibrated into the computer here, and after that this computer controls these power units so he can move or upgrade his power.
