Remember in the Terminator movies the name of the company that develops Sky-Net?
Well, theres a real company by the same name that is based in Japan (surprise, suprise), that has developed the following robotic suit -
HAL Robotic suit gets International Safety
This is how HAL works in a nutshell: Hop in, move an appendage slightly, and the suit detects the movement. After that, it guides your natural
movement, but with robotic efficiency. So if you're a senior citizen that has trouble getting around, you can move your arm slightly and let HAL help
you reach the top shelf. It's powered by a 22-pound battery attached to the waist, and the leg braces can help the wearer walk, and even climb
It's already been available for rent in Japan, where it's produced by the manufacturer Cyberdyne, and now it's the first nursing-care robot to
be approved based on the draft version of an international standard for robot safety. (The draft is expected to be approved later this year.) That
probably puts it at the consumer forefront of robot suits, even if we've seen some military-type inventions with a similar idea.
For now its for "limb assistance" but that use could give the system enough data to learn from and operate and function like a real human in the
future without the "human" in the system.....giving us the "terminator" military application within our lifetimes.

SKYNET's Terminators one step
closer to reality
The tech is there, the funding could be there, we just need the intent!
If the public/private sector can develop what we have seen thus far, imagine what the military with its massive resources is playing with in secret at
