Kikai Walker: A Mech For The Kids


Whoever said mechs were only for adults was an idiot. Only good things can happen when you artificially enhance a toddler’s strength right?

THe Kikai Kid’s Walker is a 5 1/2-foot tall exoskeleton designed specifically for children. Basically, it’s a more kid-friendly version of a larger mech that the Japanese company Sakakibara Kikai built as a promotional tool several years back.

Worry not though, the controls have been intentionally restricted and it does little more than shuffle along the ground in order to keep kids safe. At this point there aren’t any plans to put the device into production either, which might be disappointing to rich parents with kids that have a bully problem—although rentals may be possible down the line.
