Submission + - Colorblind Man Sees By Hearing With Electronic Eye (singularityhub.com)

kkleiner writes: "Neil Harbisson was born without the ability to see color. Everything is black and white for him. But thanks to an "electronic eye" he supports on his head at all times, colors are translated into sounds, and now he can "see" in some ways that normal humans cannot. Neil can "eat his favorite song". He can perceive parts of the electromagnetic spectrum outside of the range of normal human vision. Now he has co-launched a foundation that advocates the development and adoption of cybernetics into society."
