This is a video of Bizkit the sleepwalking dog. You should watch it, it's funny and sad at the same time. It is funny at the moment the dog tries to run and it runs faster and faster, you will feel it when wacthing it. But quite sad he wakes up and hits the wall. I originally thought it was cruel, but then watched the rest of the user's videos and they film the dog all the time, so I don't think they knew it would run into the wall. They probably shock and feel sorry for Bizkit like us....Enjoy ;)
The device will support users within two inches of its preset 5-foot, 7-inch user height. The entire system, including its lithium ion battery and shoes, weighs 14.3lbs, and uses two electric motors to assist users' leg movement for up to two hours before a re-charge is required.
Research on the device began in 1999, which can tell how much assist is required based on information sent by the sensors embedded in the shoes of the device, which monitor and send out weight distribution to identify activities such as walking or crouching. The movement of the knees is also monitored. The carried over some of its research in developing ASIMO, its walking humanoid robot, in the development of this walking assist device. These include the device's ability to direct force toward the user's center of gravity and control the assist force in relation to the movement of the legs, making for more natural behavior.
Honda will begin testing the device at its Saitama vehicle production factory in Japan starting later this month.
