The World Cup this year is going to bring something more extraordinary and more interesting than just the usual bicycle kick scoring the winning goal. In a joint effort of universities such as Colorado State University, The Technical University of Munich and Duke University, a paralyzed kid is going to get the chance of opening the biggest football event.
The event will kick off as this guy will kick the ball wearing a motorized exoskeleton which is going to be controlled by the brain. This comes as a promotional gesture for the Walk Again Project and recently Colorado State University published a video which showed its part in the project. The video helps us to understand how the mind-control helmet was 3D-printed layer-by-layer in order to fit the wearer's head and connect the electrodes.
The video is a perfect gateway for new ways into technological advancements and how far its effects can reach. It promotes the idea of robotics and 3D printing and how the use of it can completely transform the lives of people in ways they would never even have imagined possible.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
