Telekinesis：隔传动，英文释义为the ability to move objects through mind power. 通常也称为psychokinesis.
13-year old Riley was born with cerebral palsy which makes it difficult for him to do a lot of everyday things. But now he can do pretty much anything with the help of one Aussie scientist and some pretty cool tech. Take a look.
This is Riley. He’s 13, has a little sister and brother, and a dog named Tiny.
CHASE: A lot of people see Riley as different but in my eyes, he’s always the way he has been and he’s just a normal brother to me.
Riley was born with cerebral palsy, so it’s hard for him to do many of the things other kids can. Just to speak he uses a special computer that tracks his eye movements because his eyes are the only part of his body he can control well.
RILEY: The hardest thing for me is not having some independence.
But biomedical engineer Dr Jordan Nguyen has come up with a plan to help.
DR JORDAN NGUYEN: If we can get it working, you’re going to be controlling technology through your eyes. It’s going to be a form of telekinesis. You know, the idea that you can, without touching an object, be able to move an object, be able to turn on an object and be able to control that technology. And I think that idea, it’s like a superhuman power.
With the help of scientists and a team of engineers Jordan has created a device that tracks eye movements like up, down, left and right.
Those movements will act as commands for a computer that will control lots of the things Riley has around his home.
DR JORDAN NGUYEN: If we’re able to work out which signals you’re doing each time, we’re going to be able to control anything, any type of technology we can think of.
After weeks of hard work, and lots of training, Riley and Jordan are ready to test out the new equipment.
DR JORDAN NGUYEN: First Riley’s going to try turning on the light bulb.
DR JORDAN NGUYEN: There we go!
It’s a massive moment, and it means Riley could soon have more control over the things around him. But there’s one more piece of technology Riley has always dreamed of controlling.
RILEY: I want to drive a car.
DR JORDAN NGUYEN: You want to drive a car.
And Jordan and his team reckon their technology is up to the task. Riley will be able to steer the car using the same eye commands as before. But because his eyes won’t be able to stay focused on the road a set of buzzers on his arms will let him know if he gets close to something.
So now it’s time to see if it all works!
DR JORDAN NGUYEN: So, it might not be a car but I think it’s a little bit better. What do you reckon? Yeah? Do you want to give that a go?
DR JORDAN NGUYEN: Keep it straight. Yeah! Yeah! Up, up, up. Whoo-hoo-hoo! Oh, Riley! Oh, my God. You drove a car. Oh, my God. Oh. We got there.
RILEY: Wow. This has been the best experience of my life.
