Dr Jordan Nguyen knows very well how much technology can change lives

 The young Australian biomedical engineer invented a  mind controlled  wheelchair that can be directed using electrical energy from the brain for a young boy with Cerebral Palsy.

But he says there's something that can change the world  so much more than any whizz bang technology scientists come up with. Empathy. He's on a mission to blend humanity and technology.
