Radioshack's new robot building kit looks so cool, we should have a Mr.Robot competition with this as the prize. Or I should pretend there is a competition and then just keep it Wink

Actually forget building a robot, it seems we can now become one with this new Japanese invention, a powered exo-skeleton that enhances muscle power.

She doesn't look very heavy, I was hoping to see them lifting something more impressive like a car. I reckon I could lift her without the aid of an exoskeleton.

I wonder if I'll see the first Security truck robbery using something like that before I die.

In fact - might be something I can use when I'm in my old age Smile maybe we'll see a whole spate of crimes where OAPs run off with Securicor vans...

Technically, no Courier will service a package 1000Kg in weight, 3.4m high (among the ones I checked), and with a declared value of 36000000, so I guess the world will never know.
