Deaf-Blind Super-Fan Created A Genius System For Watching The World Cup

by Christina Sterbenz | Business Insider | June 16, 2014

This video shows what it means to be a die hard soccer fan. 
Carlos, the boy above, can't see or hear, but his friends and family created a system so he can still follow the World Cup. 
They hand-made a board to resemble a soccer field and move their arms around it in real-time, mimicking the players'. That way, Carlos can feel what's happening in the game.
The process looks fairly complicated. But when Brazil scores a goal and his hands shoot up into the air — you know it work.
