HAL Suits Could Help Support Nuclear Cleaners

A Tungsten vest provides its wearer fantastic protection from radiation's damaging effects. Problem is—said vest also weighs about 132 pounds. So how does the Haz-Mat crew of tomorrow gird their loins in this radiation-resistant element? Exo-suits, obviously.

Pretty neat stuff; I could see this being great for heavy/dangerous tasks that robots are not skilled enough to complete.

Robots don't lack skill to complete nuclear cleanup they lack survivability and radiation hardening. Every robot sent into chernobly popped it's circuits within minutes. Fukishima eats cameras.
Radiation also destroys metal. The helicopter that tried to lower a cap over chernobyl recieved radiation in it's tail rotor section that grain cracked it and made it fall into the mess.

Yes, but the item I was describing is the fact that robots are very limited in their application. Flying ones get everywhere, but you have to be careful not to hit anything; and the tracked robots can have trouble with stairs or debris.

Humans are generally more mobile, have better vision, and additional senses.

Would certainly help with Fukushima disaster if they could roll these out - what they really needed these for was the Chernobyl disaster.
