This may not be a mountain climbing, super-human robo suit but it still may improve the lives of quadriplegics around the globe. The MyTobii monitor is a first generation development that would allow people to control their computer screens by simply moving their eyes. Admittedly, the technology is not without its flaws because you still need the mouse to click, but that seems like a small obstacle for the next-gen MyTobii.

Just connect to a power source, such as a wall socket, power wheelchair or separate battery. The device can be mounted for use at a desk, wheelchair, bed or anywhere suitable for the user.
