Bionic Legs Let Paralyzed Man Walk Again (VIDEO)

A New Zealand biotech company has developed technology that allows a paralyzed man to walk again.

The bionic legs are called REX, for "robotic exoskeleton," a $160,000 machine that lets its user walk up slopes and go down and up stairs. It also allows you to see eye to eye with your peers, and accomplish a range of tasks that a wheelchair won't.
