Mind-Controlled Mechanical Limbs
Man and Machine Meet as Zac Vawter Climbs the Sears Tower

History has been made as a man with a mind-controlled bionic leg has climbed the 103 floors of the Sears Tower. Zac Vawter lost his leg in a motorcycle accident and, thanks to further advancements in biotechnology, he is able to have a casual stroll up some stairs with the help of a bionic leg.

Sorry if you were mislead by the title, but Zac isn’t using Psychokinesis or ‘The Force’ to control the bionic leg. Instead, the bionic leg is connected to Zac’s nervous system and controlled by his neurons. The technology displayed here demonstrates the tip of the iceberg in the growing kinship between man and machine. It surely won’t be long until one’s brain can be saved on to a flash drive.
