Where science and soccer come together: World Cup 2014

Mentioned in an earlier post with the “controversy” surrounding it, some REALLY AMAZING technology will debut at the world cup.  The exoskeleton suit, reminiscent of something out of Marvel comics, uses actual brain signals from individuals to allow them to move.  Spearheaded by Dr. Miguel Nicolelis, this exoskeleton will allow a paraplegic to actually kick the first ball of the world cup!

Check out the background and science behind it all here!!

Beyond excited for this showcase of scientific innovation at the first game of the World Cup!  Not to mention, it’s just really really cool!
