Every exoskeleton concept we’ve seen has been made for adults. What about the children? What about their fragile bones and muscles? Hell, if we had exokeletons for kids we could get them into the workforce by the age of 6. The 5.25 foot tall Kid’s Walker is a snack-sized bipedal robot suit for kiddos.
At first glance it might seem a little unsafe to let gets wield the power of a 450 lb. exoskeleton, but that’s been thought through. The controls are completely kid-friendly, limiting what the kid can actually accomplish with his new mech body. Each Kid’s Walker is expected to sell for around $21,000. I haven’t done the math yet, but I think you might make a profit with all the years of unpaid labor you’ll receive.
