My Kind of Walker

Honda and a Japanese university have developed working prototypes of mobility-enhancing exoskeletons. Allowing old folks the ability to get around with ease and efficiency is admirable, but I can't shake the thought that the Honda device, at least, looks rather... embarrassing. Like something's grabbing the person's crotch, that sort of thing.

It's a prototype mecha. You know it is. Soon we're going to have the remnants of the Greatest Generation in mobile armor.

Since the nice ones have died off we're going to be left with the "get off my lawn" types - with firepower.
