Man Invents Cybernetic Suit, Names it HAL, Dooms Us All
A scientist invented a suit
that amplifies its wearers' strength from two to ten times. The plus side: It looks really neat. The minus: If someone cannot lift squat, then the suit amplifies squat times ten, which equals jack squat.
But he invented a suit that does things for people, and named it HAL, after the machine in 2001 that does things for people then goes crazy and kills Dave.
That would be like inventing a lawn mower and naming it Foot Chopper.
