Here’s a video on Honda's new product: a pair of legs supporting a bench you can sit and walk on. The legs support about 15% of your weight. This is quite an elegant solution compared with the exoskeletons normally used for this kind of application (see above video).

Honda’s wants to help workers and people in general who have some impairment. Besides the media attention garnered by their humanoid robots, it is interesting to see the robotic products coming out of this automobile giant.
