Listening to Color


Neil Harbisson is an artist who was born without the ability to sense color.  To him everything is in black and white.  Some time ago, he artificially extended his senses by implanting a chip in his head to convert colors to sounds.  Now he has a very interesting view of the world where sounds and colors are related in very unique ways.  He can tell you what your face sounds like.  He can tell you what color a piece of music is.  It's all because he has chosen to be a cyborg.
