Super corporation of just about everything electric, Japan's Honda corp. is walking it"s huge self into the new market of powered exoskeletons with this strange looking contraption. It really does look odd, not to mention extremely uncomfortable "down there."

The device ways 14.3 pounds, is designed for people within two inches or more than 5 feet, 7 inches. That's not the only design flaw, the unit only works for two hours without re-charging.

They describe it as a "walking assist device ... with the goal to provide more people with the joy of mobility", uses a pair of motorised robot legs attached to shoes worn by the user."

The only joy I could see coming out of that contraption would be the looks on Honda's engineers when that saddle is crammed in your "you know where." I personally don't think it's that cool at all.
