The Kid's Walker. You Know, Battletech, for Kids

What ambitious tot hasn't thought about defending humanity while strapped into a glorious death-dealing battlemech, right? Well now they can with Kid's Walker, a kind of bright red contraption that will have them acting out airlock fightscenes in no time.

Provided you think little Timmy or Jane are worth the $21,600 buy in, of course. But that's for outright ownership of the prototype. Rentals are how creator Sakakibara Kikai envisions the coin flowing for now, meaning this could be a real Halloween costume possibility later this month (and yes, this is the same Sakakibara Kikai company that brought the world the life-size Land Walker we reported on back in 2005).

I really can't see how anything bad could come of this development whatsoever. Happy hunting, kids! [Sakakabari Kikai via Gizmag via DVICE]
