I hope you to be much more active in each of your fields".
As in the comment by the NISTEP in the website which says "The work done gives dreams towards Science and Technologies to citizens... ", we, of CYBERDYNE, will come together in bringing dreams to the world, making year 2008 a much more splendid year.
