Cat Thinks He's Paralyzed By Thundershirt!

Filed under: Cuteness!CatFunny

OMG! Ha!!

It's like this cat is hypnotized by his thundershirt!

A thundershirt is a vest that animals wear that squeezes them like a hug and makes them feel safe and comfortable.

Usually they're for dogs who are afraid of thunder or just suffer from anxiety in general.

We guess they're not made for cats because as soon as Sam the kitty cat put it on, he's unable to move!!

His owners keep trying to get him to walk but it's like he just can't do it!

Check out the video (above) to see a cute kitty immobilized by a simple shirt!

Paralyzed Woman Completes Marathon With Bionic Legs

Filed under: InspirationRunningInjuryScience!

Claire Lomas is a 32-year-old woman from the UK who was paralyzed from the chest down, back in 2007 after a horse riding accident.

Since then, she has been able to walk again with the help of a Rewalk suit.

It's basically strapping a robotic pair of legs to your real legs. Motion sensors on the robo legs detect shifts in balance and mimic natural leg joint movement.

Well Claire just used the Rewalk suit to allow her to complete the London Marathon — 16 days after it ended.

That's crazzzzy!

She walked about 2 miles a day with her husband behind her the whole way, in case she lost her balance.

She said:

"It's a moment I am going to treasure for the rest of my life."

The moment a paralyzed woman crossed the finish line of a marathon.

We're pretty sure that's a moment people everywhere can treasure.

Mind Controlled Robots Exist!

Mind Robots

Swiss scientists have just demonstrated robots… controlled with their minds!

We're not sure, but we really hope they don't work for a company named Skynet!

Ha!

In all actuality, this is a step forward into more of an Avatar future than a Terminator one — it's being designed for those who are paralyzed!

A team at Switzerland's Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne used only a simple head cap to record the brain signals of their subject who was at a hospital SIXTY TWO MILES AWAY!

All he had to do was imagine lifting his paralyzed fingers and boom — the thoughts were instantly translated to a foot tall robot hanging out at the lab.

Apparently it's only hard to control if there's a substantial amount of pain from whatever injuries the subject has!

INcredible! We can't believe it!

Welcome to the future!
