  1. Where can I get one of these?

    I want to wear one of these exoskeltons and start a bar brawl!

    Could you imagine?

    Seriously, I wonder what al-Qaeda would be thinking, if soldiers wearing these, tear down their doors during a midnight raid!


  2. a h ,

    I think they are only leasing the HAL system. It will cost 1,500,000 yen for introduction and several hundred thousand yen par a year for maintenance.

    The only contact info I can currently find is the following e-mail address.

    Good luck!
