I was just watching this on the news, yea it was mainstream, but it was something that I thought should be brought to our attention. This was written on back in Feburary, but I'm giving you guys a update to it. Heres the link

The legs move slowly, but its a HUGE step towards people that are paralized walking again. Makes me happy that there are still people in the world that are trying to help humanity, not destroy it.

Thank you for posting this thread, I also saw the report on the MSM news. It's excellent that these bionic legs make it possible for people with severed spinal cords to be able to walk upright again. What an awesome invention from these 2 kiwi guys.

mostly i think it is for people with weak legs or elderly, or i suppose other uses

Seems like were getting closer to replacing lost limbs with bio mechanical ones. Its definitly a ray of hope for people with these types of problems.

Yea, I remember seeing this too a few weeks ago. It seems like a new toy for kids, even though its not, just seems thats what it would turn into, I know I would get one just to screw around and try doing jumps or something, lol.
