Honda’s Robot Legs

Honda has invented robot legs.  As you can see, this assistive device is designed to help handicapped, elderly or people who stand for a long time, such as factory workers.

The device is designed to reduce stress and make you feel less tired.

Engineer Jun Ashihara said,

This should be as easy to use as a bicycle.

It is still not yet commercially available and no price has been set.

This seems similar to HAL.  We are just waiting for day an entire body suit is invented so we can become a cyborg.
