Brain-controlled exoskeleton to help kick off FIFA 2014 World Cup


This feat is being carried out as a demonstration of the current state-of-the art in assisted mobility technology, as the researchers involved – part of the "Walk Again Project" – work toward refining their invention.

Early prototypes of robotic exoskeletons are pushing the boundaries of technology to allow paralyzed people to walk again, even allowing people to control the device with their thoughts alone. However, these exoskeletons are often very cumbersome and give the user poor feedback, which limits both range and precision of movement.

The Walk Again Project, an international collaboration of over 100 scientists across the globe, is developing a smart, modular and lightweight exoskeleton that can be precisely controlled using the power of thought alone.
