    I want to order one!

    and a stylish briareos-costume, too!

    I saw some people who build a exoskeleton-like walker, but it was rather large and heavy. this one ist smaller and looks like it has future.

    man, I would like to develop such things too, and be the first one able to walk in a full bodysuit-armor with camera-eyes and stuff...

    once again, science-fiction and comics are models for future in reality.
    that's why we need concept artists :chug:

    What do you expect from hydraulics? Especially those that are forced to work at a walking rate?

    Im sorry but I can't help but laugh. Everytime I watch the videos they remind me of some futuristic leafblower my gardener would use. Also the person in the video looks like he's 15 years old.

    hey I would be frightened if I hear *reeeooow* *reeeooow* a mile away, spotting at big mech-suit shades

    :eek:

    for the mech people...

    MS Gundam becomes real?

    nice website, but seriously, I think it'll take some time until it can be used in public.
