World Cup 2014 in Brazil: Opening Kick that will be felt around the World!

June 12, 2014

Today, in Sao Paulo Brazil, during the opening ceremony of the 2014 World Cup, history was made. A young man with paraplegia performed the opening kick off using a brain-controlled exoskeleton developed by Dr. Miguel Nicolelis of Duke University. This is the kick that was heard around the world, and the historical event that will shatter the stereotypes and limitations surrounding disability. Congratulations to Dr. Nicolelis and his team; today you have made the world a better place.

With my best wishes, and GO DUKE!
