When I was a kid, cyborgs were super fictional things of a remote future. Now, the time has come that cyborgs are being sold from general companies to provide labor service. The future has come!

By the way, this robot is called HAL. I’m sure that anyone would recall “The Terminator” and “A Space Odyssey” from the names CYBERDANE and HAL. (Any Japanese would know, too, but I’m considered about the rights..) It’s nice to know that the developer is a geek. They never give up. Our expectations are that they will continue to turn future technology into practical use.
