A bit off topic, but pretty neat nonetheless: Honda has rolled out its second experimental walking device. The contraption is for folks that can walk, but have trouble supporting their weight. Given all those Baby Boomers will be hitting retirement age in droves Honda may find a market.
The first walking system was unveiled in April and Honda's research rides shotgun with its ASIMO robot. In a nutshell, Honda's latest device is mounted like wearing shoes (statement). A seat supports your weight and the device moves with your legs. The system sits between your legs.
As for the specs: The Honda system weighs a little more than 14 pounds, has a motor and a Lithium ion battery that'll last about two hours.
