The Man Who Hears Color
Jul 27, 2015
Neil Harbisson was born with achromatopsia, a rare condition that leaves 1 in 30,000 people completely colorblind. He convinced doctors to implant an antenna in his skull, which allows him to hear colors through audible vibrations in his head. Harbisson calls himself a cyborg: "I don't feel that I'm using technology, I don't feel like I'm wearing technology," he says in this short film. "I feel like I am technology."
