I suppose this just beats the crap out of Segway. Poorva sends this report on the new personal mobility devices being developed by Toyota.

The personal transport arena is taking on a new dimension, though, with futuristic devices that augment human capabilities.

Toyota's prototypes represent the latest incarnation of wearable exoskeletons in a vehicular form that is specially focused on transport.

Powered robotic exoskeletons have been the focus of much US military research over the years and Japan seems to have jumped onto the bandwagon with a wave of products being developed for specific applications.

With an emerging range of devices targeted towards the ageing world population, care giving and the military, wearable exoskeletons seem to represent a new line of future technologies that meet an individual's particular mobility needs.
