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

The future is now. A disabled man is walking on the field because he has robotic legs

You couldn't make this stuff up 100 years ago

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

Ordem e Progresso!

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

What, you mean people will label it as a hoax!!! ;)

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

Was that it, did he make an entrance, did I miss anything?

Not a great advert for the hardware, maybe there was a technical hiccup.

Glad you backed me up though, I was wondering if I fell asleep during the boredom of the Opening Ceremony and missed it.
