An exoskeleton that can be controlled from brain activity will be demonstrated at the opening ceremony of the world cup in Brazil on June 12th.

The exoskeleton was developed by an international team of scientists as part of the Walk Again Project and is the culmination of more than a decade of work for Dr. Miguel Nicolelis, a Brazilian neuroscientist based at Duke University in North Carolina.

    I just can't wait for the "world exoskeleton-augmented football championship".

      Why so we can watch augmented people not score extra fast?

        You score a good point, but no... I'm just curious what new ways of simulating injuries inside the penalty area would the players be able to come with.

          Maybe 'confess' that you are an epileptic, and had a Grand Mal seizure?

    They mind-control you! Nahhh, it is a world thing.
    If you keep feeling unexplainable pain or itches (head, ears, feet), tinnitus or keep asking why you did something dumb, please read http://stopeg.com/ [stopeg.com] . A little "end-of-the-world" but the electronic harassing thing is for real. Been fried everyday since 2011, probably before when I did not know better.Yeah sucks, but a pillow and/or Styrofoam blocks some itches.

    Also, if you are coming for the cup, beware the traps ( gierls, durgs, etc). What happens here, stays in earth.

      I'm not going to your crazy paranoid gathering. *THEY* will obviously be lying in wait for me.

      All joking aside. You're delusional. Get help.

    What could possibly go wrong? They'd better check the switch to make sure it's not set to evil.
