Honda Walking Assist

Honda’s Walking Assist device have “been designed as a means to offer a helping leg to those who have difficult supporting themselves in day-to-day life but are capable of walking without assistance.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

To use the legs, the wearer slips on the special (and extremely stylish) shoes and adjusts the seat so that it supports their weight. Two motors move the frame and seat position while lithium-ion batteries keep the system powered for about two hours on a full charge.
