    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.

    its not useless. it gives perfectly able-bodied people the ability to complete a simple everyday task with slightly less effort, and only for the cost of f*ckloads of money. duh.

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

    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!

    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.

    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 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.

    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....

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

    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

    ``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.)
