    Can't wait until it hit the market. When I backpack, my pack is close to 65 pounds. I would love to have it feel 12 pounds lighter. If it really works, they will sell like crazy.

    Will a 12-pound pack be weightless?

    I haven't been able to find the article in Nature but I did run across this mention of African women deying gravity:

    It's going to have to be some great technology, because anyone who has used enough bungee cords knows how quickly they break down and lose elasticity with repeated use.

    When you stop walking, will the pack continue to "bounce" and make you think you are carrying more wieght than you really are?

    Bungee cords? No thanks. Exo skeletons are the only way to go!

    That's not an exoskeleton. This is an exoskeleton.
