Remember the exoskeleton suit in Avatar that Col. Miles Quaritch got into or the suit that Obadiah Stane used in Iron Man? Thought to yourself – I want one? Well, maybe you can get that for not only you, but also your kids.
The Kids Walker Exoskeleton suit is a big mechanical robot that you control. Sit down in the chair and navigate through the foot pedals and hand joysticks.
And yes – this model is meant for Kids.
The company – Sakakibara – not only makes exoskeletons, but also food mixing machines. Pretty interesting combination.
The other exoskeleton looks like ED209 from RoboCop. They also have other toys at the plant, like a really cool skateboard looking transport.
The Kids Walker doesn’t really walk – it rolls while the legs move around looking like it’s walking. The functionality is really limited, but it’s a toy – don’t expect it to remove trees from the back yard.
Just look at what you are sitting on. It’s a restaurant – style chair with no seatbelt.
But your kids won’t be able to save allowance for this. The price tag is $21,000. Don’t expect it to replace a Segway anytime soon. Still, it would be pretty cool to tool around in this vehicle.
