Paralysed Teen In Exoskeleton To Kick Off World Cup




The 2014 world cup in Brazil is looming like a giant, half-built, rickety stadium in the middle of the crumbling ruins of a once proud favella. And the first kick of the tournament is going to be one to watch – it’ll be made by a paralysed teenager wearing a mind controlled exoskeleton. The Walk Again project is a collaboration by a number of universities and uses micro-sensors in a cap to read brain signals. It’s understood the teenage kicker is currently training to use the suit in virtual reality.
