When Zac Vawter put his mind to climbing the 103 floors of Chicago’s iconic Willis Tower, his legs did the rest.

The Seattle resident scaled the skyscraper’s stairway heights on Sunday thanks to what the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago calls the “world’s first neural-controlled bionic leg.”

We can rebuild him!
