Honda Creates Wearable Half of AT-ST

Remember when Honda only created cars?  Now they’re one of the leaders in robotic research (and probably the death of us all in the near future).  These walker legs that they have created are the future for those who have reduced mobility.  They help support the wearer by reducing the stress of walking, climbing stairs, or being in a crouched position.  Honda also sees this as a tool for workers who have to stand all day such as those in factory settings.  God help the person that’s wearing these when they malfunction and start running on their own.  Honda also has no word on if the seat will include a massage system, but I believe they would see sales quadruple if they did.
