anvill - 2008-11-17 One of the potential "issues we encounter during testing:"
With subject wearing the device, a hardware error forces the machine's legs to full extension. The hips would give out first, grinding and popping, but at least you're 5 inches taller.
I'm sure the power these can put out isn't nearly strong enough to do that, but a guy can dream.

dementomstie - 2008-11-17 It's the prototype for The Wrong Trousers!
Keefu - 2008-11-17 How long until we get full powered armor already? I want to put "Search and Destroy" by Iggy and the Stooges on endless repeat and run around blowing shit up as soon as possible.
Jack Cooper - 2008-11-22 I would like to see this modeled by a person who actually had a disability rather than a factory worker for 5 seconds or a showman from the Honda company.
But stars for the invention.
