Apparently they changed the name of the company.  I'm not so sure that 
the tech has advanced very much though, I seem to remember seeing 
something a lot like this about six months ago, although iirc the name 
of the girl has changed... the video I'm thinking of, she was walking in 
a park, I think maybe even a little faster than the pace shown in this 
video (which does seem very slow).  Or maybe that was a product from a 
different company?

Anyway, I for one welcome our new exoskeleton overlords :-)
