Thanks for the advice, however these were a one off creation, a feasibility test if you will. since making these I moved on to other, more advanced electromechanical ideas. the concepts you mention look good but overloading CF shatters, presenting a huge H&S risk if not made properly. falling on your own stilt doesnt sound pretty, where steel would bend and be slightly safer to fall around
Consider that at this time it was made in a back garden by a 16 year old on pocket money alone. I didn't have $150, let alone the skills multiple years of developing prototypes would give you. This was a one off project to see if it's possible to make such a thing from what was possible. They're not perfect and if I wanted to, I'd make more and iron out the flaws.a knee and thigh linkage would not be needed at all, as long as you're using them correctly. The endurance and speed of them when testing them out were really good, relative to the price and weight of them. For a design that doesn't spend a thousand or so pounds per pair of boots, personally I think they function very well.
