Great device! If it becomes a commercial reality and is available for mass production people who have paraplegia and others who have lost their lower limbs will benefit a lot!

Kudos to Honda for such a brilliant innovation. Not to mention a mainstream car company that's taking initiative in a non-automotive concept. And one which could to potentially lead to increased mobility for the physically challenged.

P.S. How about a Vtec feature too?!

I am really surprized to see Honda coming up with these non-automotive devices. Of course, it would immensely help those who are physically challenged. Kudos to Honda.
