Cyberdyne Builds HAL

No, it's neither the Cyberdyne from Terminator nor the HAL from 2001. The Star is running a piece on the japanese assistive device maker Cyberdyne Inc. showing off their new exoskeleton in the Swiss Alps. As interesting as that is, I have to wonder about a company that seeks to do "research and development of the physical function assistant machine and system for the old man, handicapped person" which insists on using names from Hollywood plots where humans are considered obsolete by their AI cohorts.

When they say "old man, handicapped person" do they mean all of us?
