The opening ceremony of the 2014 FIFA World Cup was held at the Saint Paolo Stadium in Brazil. The 25-minute-long ceremony turned the gigantic stadium into a spectacular ocean of excitement. A young paraplegic Brazilian man wearing an exoskeleton kicked off the games, drawing great attention .

Despite being honored with the distinction of kicking off the FIFA competition, the young paraplegic remained anonymous in China's major media reporting.

The helmet he wore is able to monitor the brain's neural signals and transmit them to the exoskeleton. The system executes different actions depending upon the brain’s signals and allows people with paralysis to stand and walk.

The exoskeleton system cost up to $20,000USD and weighs nearly ten kilograms.

The technology of operating and controlling the exoskeleton through people’s brain signals remains in the early development stage and may take 10 to 20 years before it is ready for use.
