You’re sweating in your bulky radiation suit, your dosimeter is freaking you out, and you’re trying to close a valve that might just save a large portion of the population from some very nasty fallout.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have some robotic help?

Japan’s robot start-up Cyberdyne is modifying its Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) power suit for use by first responders in nuclear accidents.

The exoskeleton is being improved to help workers who have to wear heavy radiation protection clothing. Japan is still struggling with radiation at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, which was severely damaged last year during one of the country’s most powerful earthquakes.
