It makes awesome sounds.  Doesn't look that useful for able-bodied 
people though - since it doesn't actually extend up to even the hips, it 
clearly can't support much of your weight, only itself.

Still, it also only costs $40k, which is orders of magnitude less than 
the military exoskeletons we've seen so far... and this one is already 
battery operated (for at least 15 minutes...)
