Four years ago Sakakibara Kikai brought us a $ 300,000 real-life BattleMech, and the company hasn’t sat idle since then — last December, it put the final touches on a significantly smaller exoskeleton designed specifically for children. The Kid’s Walker stands just over five feet tall and weighs four hundred pounds, and though the gasoline-powered creature doesn’t exactly walk, its wheeled feet definitely stroll around. The Japanese company told Gizmag the suit isn’t presently for sale — just rentals for now — but would probably cost about 1.8 million yen (around $ 21,600) should it come to market.

Panasonic must be mighty annoyed right about now, because Toshiba’s seemingly got it trumped — when the first batch of lightning-quick UHS-I cards ship in November, Toshiba’s chips will be faster and larger on day one. As you can no doubt see immediately above, the latter company’s fielding full-size SDHC UHS-I cards at up to 32GB that promise maximum read and write times of 95MB/s and 80MB/s respectively, not to mention tiny microSDHC units that still manage a very respectable 40MB/s and 20MB/s. As per usual, these numbers are fast and loose, so don’t be surprised if you get a good bit less in practice, but we imagine you should be able to rely on at least the quoted minimum transfer rate of 10MB/s. No ludicrous early-adopter memory prices quite yet, but we imagine your ego will write the necessary checks as soon Toshiba takes care of that. PR after the break.
