Did anybody else deem those dancers for the presentation pretty unnecessary?

So, is the lowercase "i" replacing the lowercase "e" in front of electronic item names to make them sound "futuristic" now?

I think they replace `e` (electronic) with `i` to make the product seem more personal. Like an iPod. You personalize it with the songs and stuff you like in it.

Well, it`s the closest thing to the APUs from The Matrix Reloaded...

To be honest, as innovative as it is, I think that it would be pointless to actually have disabled people use this. The whole point of these kinds of things is to make disabled people mobile, and why use this if wheelchairs are already a very good choice? I mean, unless it actually enabled disabled people to use their legs somehow, or could help them up stairs, there`s no real advantage against wheelchairs.

On a side note, though, the actual walker concept looks cool. It doesn`t seem long before we`ve got Metal Gear Rexes and ATATs running (walking?) all over the place.

Granted, Bipedal machines in ANY form are hard to make (Center of gravity, balance issues), Bipedal machines that can hold the weight of a shifting person and not topple... That`s technology. It has to constantly maintain a center of gravity, and for a machine, that`s hard...

If ANYONE mentions a gyroscope, I will personally hang, draw and quarter you in the town square. =_=

Wouldn`t an electric wheelchair be faster and eaiser to get around with. That thing looks very tall and slow. Also, It really didn`t look capable of navigating stairs or any other rough terain for that matter, so it doesn`t even give any advantages over a wheelchair.

All the fun of knocking ASIMO down stairs, but this time with the added bonus of further injuring a cripple!

There is already a thing called a wheelchair. And if you are gonna make a fudgein `MECH` for the handicapped, make it look less GAY and look less like a damn egg with feet.

Did toyota have a major corporate merger with Cirque du Soleil, or did I have the wrong mushrooms on my pizza?

On the subject of the clip, I think it would be awsome if they started wiring people into these with the technology in this clip from a while back http://www.i-am-bored.com/bored_link.cfm...

Now on the subject of this must be fake because companies are only allowed to make one type of product...
Thanks Camelnoise, none of us realized Toyota is a car maker, you tard. Just because for the most part Japanese companies only send us a few products (like how all we see from Toyota is cars) does not mean that they do not branch into other elements back home. Your posts are really starting to make me think you are a thirteen year old who just said your age is older to feel better about your meager self.
