Becoming Superhuman

Featuring: Dr. Jordan Nguyen, Riley Saban

Biomedical engineer Dr Jordan Nguyen tries to make a boy’s wildest dreams come true with cutting-edge technology. He's promised 13-year-old Riley Saban he will invent a device to help Riley achieve the impossible.

Riley lives with severe cerebral palsy. It means he has no voluntary control of any part of his body except his eyes. He can't walk or talk, let alone get up and turn on a light or the air conditioning in the hot Northern New South Wales summer.

But Jordan has promised Riley he will not only invent a device to enable Riley to turn on the lights, air conditioning, the television and computer at home; he will enable Riley to drive, a lifelong dream. And all this technology will be controlled solely with Riley’s eyes.
