For some, science fiction movies conjure ideas about a faraway—perhaps impossible—future. For Yoshiyuki Sankai, they provide inspiration for tangible, life-changing technologies. Sankai is CEO of Cyberdyne, a billion-dollar company that shares its name with the cyborg manufacturer in “The Terminator.” He’s also the creator of HAL, an exoskeleton that uses brainwaves to move and helps people regain the ability to walk. And if the name sounds familiar, you’re onto a pattern. This revolutionary device is named for the A.I. in “2001: A Space Odyssey.”
