Real life cyborg.... he can HEAR colors (video)
Neil Harbisson is a cyborg.

Protruding from his skull is an electronic eye that allows Harbisson, a 30-year-old who was born color-blind, to listen to color. For the past 10 years, the cybernetic device, which Harbisson calls his “antenna,” has converted light into higher or lower-pitched tones that Harbisson hears through bone conduction.

In a 2012 TED talk, Harbisson explained that going to an art gallery is like going to a concert and he looks at food in a whole new way: "Now I can display the food on a plate, so I can eat my favorite song."

Harbisson, an artist and co-founder of the Cyborg Foundation, argues that technology can endow humans with an endless number of new senses and abilities that expand what they feel and, consequently, what they know about the world. While some speculate about the possibility of a sixth sense, Harbisson dreams of helping us attain a 13th or a 14th sense.

“We don’t depend on natural evolution anymore,” Harbisson explained. “We can evolve during our lifetime and we can evolve in the way we wish.”

I can perceive ultraviolet, which is a color many birds and insects already perceive. And I can hear through bone conduction, which dolphins already do. We could acquire senses that let us perceive where north is, like sharks, or improve our sense of smell, just like a dog’s.
