MechWalker, Personal Robot Suit

mechwalkerJeevus “Tap Dancin'” Christ, this looks awesome! I only wish I had more of those essential, um, details.

This is what I do have: It does come with a gun. It only shoots foam balls. Crap!

It is made by agricultural machinery-making company Sakakibara-Kikai.

It actually works. You can see videos of this here and here.

And it costs 36 million Yen. That’s about 330,000 US$.

If any of you speak the wonderful language of the Land of the Rising Sun, please regale our hungry souls with details aplenty. The website is here. The story VIA Octopusdropkick.

Update: Erb gerb blab! This is old.
