Robotic prosthetic legs

This is exactly what it looks like; people having motorized robot legs to help them walking. More Japanese crotch-robotics. I wonder what  happens when these things get a will of their own,  and start evolving their own ways of walking. So your 300 pound bearded boss might suddenly start hopscotching around the office like his 7 year old granddaughter.

Anyway, this is the next development by Cyberdyne, and the 'hybrid assistive limb' suits are for rent for 2,200 USD in Japan as from last Friday.

No question about it, but it's now really evident that we are already post-human.
