Japan - Technology - International Robot Exhibition
A Japanese man wearing a Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) robot suit, which is developed by University of Tsukuba, carries packs of rice weighing 30 kg (66 lbs) at the 2005 International Robot Exhibition in Tokyo November 30, 2005. The robot suit is equipped with sensors that can detect electric nerve signals transmitted from the brain when a person tries to move his or her limbs, enabling the computer to start up relevant motors to assist the person's motion. The world's largest robotics trade show is being held until December 3.
