um. so aside from being pretty dorky, this thing is called the 'hybrid assisted limb
' (HAL) suit, intended to help the disabled walk again.
aside from sharing a name with the murderous computer from 2001, the suit is made by a japanese company called 'cyberdyne,' which may sound familiar, as it was the corporation in 'terminator' that brought about the end of the world through it's intuitive robot technology.
note to the handicapped: do not EVER strap yourself into one of these.
