Have you been longing to own one of those powered suits that you see in the movies? Well it looks like you need not long for any more thanks to Sagawa Electronics of Japan who just happen to have a Powered Jacket for retail at a laughable 12,000,000 yen.

The powered jacket is an extension of your body - you move your arms and it will move its arms with a Master/Slave setup.
At the moment it does not amplify your strength but will do so in future versions.
Check out the video below to see it in action.

Folks who attended the last Wonfes would have seen it in action.

Hmmmm? What's that on its top half?

Wut? "Culture Japan" and "Mirai Suenaga"?! Looks like they are fans!

The next step is for them to put the Powered Jacket technology into one of these and have it ready for display at the next Wonfes.
Looks like the next Wonfes in Feb is going to be a special event for many including a certain little girl...

And here is mirai in her Powered Jacket - we call it the Retrograde Suit.
