Here's a YouTube video of eLEGS. Looks pretty cool.

This week's episode of Glee showed Arty (the disbled guy in a wheelchair) receiving something that looks very similar to the eLegs for Christmas.

Pretty cool but it looks like you'll need upper body strength in order to get around. Maybe with some practice, it'll work better.

Dan, good stuff. Besides HAL and the Toyota and Honda devices, here is another potential product. The six hours of battery life is big compared to these other devices. Thanks for the heads up.

Luis, I saw that episode of Glee and was wondering if this was the same device or the one that they are experimenting with in Israel and at some place in New York.
