Everyone take note of the name: Yoshiyuki Sankai. He has created a technology that if used for evil could lead to some very anime-esque apocalypse scenarios. The Hybrid Assistive Limb (Hal) created at Tokyo university adds strength and power to the person using it. Also, (and more importantly) it allows the user to look like a total badass and destroy inferior humanoids with the merciless efficiency of a godless killer robot. Let's hope this Dr. Sankai is a nice guy. He wields the power to kill us all.
