World’s First Commercially Available Power Suit??
What’s the best way to sell a state of the art 12.5 million yen robot suit? Get a school girl to model it of course. Sagawa Electronics has released a video with their spokesperson “Scar-face Santaro” of what they call the world’s first commercially available powered suit: The Powered Jacket MK3. Video below.
Assuming that you’ve just watched that hilarious video; you must be wondering if it’s a joke or not. Though it’s obviously not what you’d consider a power-suit, apparently 5 units of the MK3 is actually available for purchase. There is an accompanying web-comic also available in English here. Maybe it will help shed some light on the bizarreness?
The The Powered Jacket MK3 looks remarkly similar to a human powered suit we saw a few years back. Coincidence??
