A paralyzed teenager will make the first kick at the 2014 World Cup before the opening match between Brazil v. Croatia. The exoskeleton, which is enabling the paralyzed teen to walk and kick a soccer ball, has been designed by Duke University supported by the Walk Again Project. This monumental step in technology will make for a very exciting first kick, and let’s not forget that this teenager will be walking when prior knowledge told us that was impossible. What are your thoughts on the opening kick?
