Becoming Superhuman (Catalyst)



Biomedical engineer Dr Jordan Nguyen’s promised 13 year-old Riley Saban, who lives with severe cerebral palsy that he will invent a device to help Riley achieve the impossible, with cutting-edge technology.

Jordan’s aim is for Riley to have ‘telekinetic control’ – the ability to independently take control of the technology in his environment using only his eyes – through a headband that will respond to Riley’s eye movements.

Is the day when technology gives our biology superhuman powers closer than we think?
