Submission + - Robotic underlords to help humans walk (theglobeandmail.com)

Frankenbuffer writes: Honda has revealed an interesting set of robotic legs to help the elderly or factory workers improve mobility while reducing fatigue. The device consists of a unicycle-like seat with two powered legs attached to shoes. The legs respond to natural movements like climbing stairs or squatting, and assist by gently supporting the wearer's weight. I can't wait for a "giant stride" version that would let me walk at 50 km/hr!
