another exoskeleton video: in streets of tokyo

Exoskeletons, its the new Segway!

I wonder why the ladies hips move a lot more on the exoskeleton than for the guys . . . maybe its not a good fit or something?

Oh, and ignore the annoying ad before the video . . .

it just looks like the girl swings her hips more when she walks, plus girls walk differently, take a different stride than males, physiology between genders is different enough that people walk differently

it looks like the exo can't cope with the swinging of the hips
use the google.  it's your friend.

Wow!

My friend's in Japan right now and he was just telling me about this! So that's what they look like.
I think the chauffeur did it.

He did.
