If this exoskeleton can be made practically, what a boon!  I can see some scientist trying to make a set of "Doc Oct" arms

I hope they pull this off. Personally, this would be akin to the moon landings.

Imagine 100 years from now, the technology may allow a paraplegic man to play in the World Cup.

Well that was a let down, I saw him warming up at the edge of the pitch....
