Neil Harbisson, the world's first eyeborg


Neil Harbisson - The cyborg: "Neil Harbisson is the first person in the world to be fitted with an eyeborg.
Harbisson, a completely colourblind artist and musician, previously only painted in black and white. Now he is painting in colour.

The eyeborg allows people with visual impairments, and even total blindness, to experience the world in colour. Adam Montandon from HMC MediaLab has built a system that hijacks Neil Harbisson's other senses by allowing him to 'see' colour through his ears."
