Not sure why this guy needs it, he is big and strong and the camera is an SR3....

The trick would obviously be to find a way for it to look less leg-bracey/Forrest Gump-esque
You never know, maybe some people are into that sort of thing ;-) In all seriousness I think that is the least of the problems with such a setup, although I definitely think there is some promise in the idea.
Check out the video on this page: http://www.engadget....tening-reality/
Something like this integrated with a vest could be promising: http://machinedesign...htechlegup.aspx
There was another video of a much simpler lighter weight version floating around not too long ago.
