Perhaps only in Japan will a manga story influence a company to produce a real life exoskeleton. Based on the PoweredJacket comic book, a romantic comedy manga that looks at the lives of high school students in 2044, this Powered Jacket MK3 is an actual recreation of the story’s exoskeleton, made by Sagawa Electronics in Japan. To launch this item, they have produced a humorous demonstration video below, highlighting the device’s functionality. Weighing in at 25kg and standing at 225cm high, this product can be yours for 12,500,000 yen, which equates to around $124,000. As one would expect, these are made to order only, and only five units will be made in total.
