Hi,
Found this while searching for something different.
Brings up some thoughts.

The immediate application seemed all too perfect, until I read "small combustion engine"...yikes!

Really interesting stuff though, thanks for posting.

I wish I was working in the late 70's early 80's only 6 million dollars for bionic limbs! :rolleyes:

Update from Berkeley Bionics... Video is worth watching .

Now , is there a place for the Exo-backmount vest in your kit ?

Walter should check into this....

Very interesting. Its cool to see how small the unit really is without the backpack. The unit shown is also 2 generations old. Its got to cost a ton though. You can see that you could hard mount off the unit from where they had the weightplates. One day maybe in another 15years.

I've actually exchanged e-mails with them recently. They were talking about bringing in a rig and operator and trying it out.... I told them I'd be happy to go.

Looks interesting although the guy they were using to demo it looked like he could handle those loads no problem even without the exoskeleton. I would have been much more impressed if they had shown a small woman carrying 200 pounds on her back with ease :-)

this thing is the answer to my desire to continue heavy drinking, smoking and not working out! I hope Walter is working on one.
