Duke University neurobiologists hope to equip a paralyzed teenager
with a mind-controlled exoskeleton capable of bringing movement back
to his or her legs. While the technology is still in development, the
plan is to debut the system at the start of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in
Brazil, where the teen will hopefully make history by providing the
tournament’s first ceremonial kick.
