The metal on Zac Vawter's bionic leg gleamed as he climbed 103 floors of Chicago’s Willis Tower, becoming the first person ever to complete the task wearing a mind-controlled prosthetic limb.
Zac Vawter considers himself a test pilot. After losing his right leg in a motorcycle accident, the 31-year-old software engineer signed up to become a research subject, helping to test a trailblazing prosthetic leg controlled by his thoughts.
"Everything went great," said Mr. Vawter at the event’s end at the skyscraper formerly known as the Sears Tower. "The prosthetic leg did its part, and I did my part."
"Somewhere down the road, it will benefit me and I hope it will benefit a lot of other people as well," Mr. Vawter said about the research at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
