These kids are from Camp Sunshine, a support program for children and teens fighting cancer. If that can't rile up the team, what will?

From Neatorama:

Hélio Surdos's friend Carlos is deaf, blind, and a huge soccer fan. As a result of his sensory limitations, he's been largely left out of the excitement of the World Cup in Brazil. One morning, Hélio woke up with a great desire to help Carlos follow a soccer match live. So he made a scale model of a soccer field and marked lines with what appears to be a plastic clay. During a match between Brazil and Croatia, Hélio moved Carlos's hands over the board to match the movement of the ball. Regiane, an interpreter, verbally signed the gameplay into Carlos's back. As you can see, Carlos really got into the spirit of the event.

Things get a bit technical, obviously, but the point is that 3D printing technology and modern neuroscience is going to let a paralyzed patient kick the first ball at the World Cup. How awesome is that?

The exoskeleton will support the lower part of the body and enable the paralyzed wearer to walk using wireless electrodes attached to the head that collect brainwaves, which then signal the suit to move.
