In the future, we will all have robo legs. Self-propelled walking will go the way of the Dodo Bird.

``It`s incredibly powerful``-walks up stairs-
HOLY poo /sarcasm

The thing probably does nothing, it`s probably the guy walking on his own(while the thing is strapped to him.)

it`d be better if they created a thing with people that cant use their legs at all i dont mean people that need prostetics(i don`t know if i spelt that right)
but maybe there is somthing out there and i just dont know but, instead of making somthing to help people who can already walk

so some guy went out and spent thousands of dollars to design and develop a machine whose only function is to make walking awkward.

hahaha i was going to ask about the red pants, but apperently I`m not the only one!

Wasn;t there something similar in the form of a whole suit recently on iab?

Wait, so let me get this straight. These robo legs are used for assisting us to walk easier? Isn`t walking already pretty damn easy? Can`t they malfunction and keep making us walk, while our body says `no, I can`t walk anymore, we have to sit...`....?

This seems like a pretty wasteful piece of machine....

The only bad thing about this video really was the retarded use of 8bit music in it. I would like to see what practical use of these types of walking devices would be like. But hey if you actually owned a pair and they made working on your feet all day much easier I could see a real marked for them some day.

Those red pants were almost more amazing than the walking machine! :-p

Seriously though, my grandmother would love that walking machine. She could get rid of her cane.

The use for this? Walking aid for people with disabilities. 5$ says Wilson will suggest this to House in the near future and get a biting remark in reply.

PierreJeanFR: As gorgack said, Megaman themes, `cos it kinda resembles him.

Oh wow so if you get a person who can walk perfectly fine and then shove that on them they can still walk perfectly fine, that`s amazing that is.

Congratulations, Honda - you`ve managed to beat Segway for the title of Least Practical Mode of Transportation!

I honestly can`t think of any practical applications for this thing. If your legs are healthy enough to use that, they are healthy enough to walk normally. I thought the whole point of robo legs was to help people walk who previously couldn`t, not to help people walk who previously didn`t quite feel like it!

If you wanted to walk like that, without the expense, you could just take a dump in your pants.

I really wanted to see it malfunction on that guy in the, size too small red pants, and rip his legs off in a flurry of metal and blood.
