It’s showtime for the 2014 World Cup. On Thursday, one of the eight partially paralyzed men and women who have been training with Miguel Nicolelis’ robotic, mind-controlled exoskeletons will stand up from their wheelchair and make the opening kickoff. The technology used to do this springs from a close collaboration between Nicolelis the neuroscientist, and electrical engineer Gordon Cheng. Together they lead the Walk Again Project which now promises to make history.
