 Paralysed Teen to Kick Off the Opening Game of 2014 Football World Cup
Using an advanced mind-controlled exoskeleton, a paralysed teen may get to provide the first ceremonial kick of the opening game of the 2014 Football World Cup.

This event would showcase the 'Walk Again Project,' which is an international collaboration that uses technology to help paralysed overcome their problem, New Scientist reported.

The exoskeleton provides support to the lower body and brain activity patterns detected by electrodes placed either on the scalp or within the brain itself, help control it.

The signals are then transmitted to a computer worn by the wearer, which then converts them into movements.
