Robots are “heroes”, says one of the colorful notes plastered on the wall right before the entrance to Cyberdyne’s gallery in iiAS Tsukuba Shopping Center. Cyberdyne is a company built by robotics engineer and professor, Yoshiyuki Sankai.

The Cyberdyne studio feature exhibits and interactive lectures about the role of Cybernics and robot suit HAL® (Hybrid Assistive Limbs) in medicine, heavy works industry, entertainment, and other fields. It’s a fascinating experience to be able to wear a part of a robot! So if ever you find yourself in Tsukuba make sure you drop by Cyberdyne.

Basic admission is free and the studio is open from 10:00–21:00. They also offer other programs such as the group guided tour and HAL® demonstration, more information can be found at their website.

I'm in love with Japanese food and have been trying to learn Nihongo on my own. But this summer I participated in the short stay program of Tokyo University of Foreign Studies. I want to be able to share in this website the experiences I had as a visitor and a foreign student in Japan. ^^
