    This is my first news post so let me know if I did anything wrong.

    Sagawa Electronics Inc. created an exoskeleton that will be limited to five units priced at 12.5 million Yen (124,575 USD). It has no power source and it's purpose is to extend the human limbs. The materials used to make it are mostly carbon fiber and aluminum which help keep it's weight low at 25kg.



    I think this is a very neat product. The fact that it uses no power source and moves in real time is really appealing. I don't think it makes you stronger, it just extends your reach. Unfortunately, it's limited to 5 units so seeing one in person wont happen any time soon for me. Still, this is one of the first steps until we finally get fully operational gundams :tpi:
    I love the idea of mechs, animes like Gundam Wing, and now a movie, Pacific Rim. Now, where do I sign?

    "Sagawa Electronics?" And the host of the demo video is some guy called "Scarface Santaro"?

    Are we sure this isn't actually a promo for a new Ghost in the Shell movie?

    Hmm... So maybe it's one suit, although a bit modified, but the one in the Sagawa video is being used to promote Ghost in the Shell?

    And Scarface Santaro is badass, imho. He must have been quite the brawler, getting his face beat up that much and still be able to wear a damned suit.
