kkleiner writes: Imagine if all the sounds in your world translated into visual experiences. The cross-blending of sensory input – called synesthesia – is normally limited to individuals with a relatively unique neurological condition.

This technological sensory substitution shows evidence of rewiring the brains of the blind, restoring vision and improving their lives drastically.
