The name is the same as a fictional company from the Terminator film series, which also produces robots. The name, however, is not intentionally a reference, but from the new academic fields of "Cybernics," and the suffix "-dyne," referring to power.
In early 2009, CYBERDYNE attracted international media attention with the announcement that it will be marketing and distributing the HAL 5 (Hybrid Assistive Limb) powered exoskeleton, which they claim augments body movement and increases user strength by up to ten times. As of February 2013, CYBERDYNE has leased 330 HAL suits to 150 facilities across Japan, and HAL has been given a global safety certification that should allow it to be distributed outside Japan.
