Neil Harbisson was born completely color-blind. But thanks to a device he wears which translates shades into frequencies, he can now hear colors—and perhaps loves and appreciates them more than those with better sight.

Neil Harbisson was born with achromatopsia, a rare condition that causes complete colour blindness. In 2004, Harbisson and Adam Montandon developed the eyeborg, a device that translates colours into sounds. Harbisson has been claimed to be the first recognized cyborg in the world, as his passport photo now includes his device

Neil Harbisson: the world's first cyborg artist

Neil Harbisson is an early cyborg artist and the few human to have an antenna implanted into his skull. This talks about him and his process.

“Artist Neil Harbisson was born completely color blind, but these days a device attached to his head turns color into audible frequencies. Instead of seeing a world in grayscale, Harbisson can hear a symphony of color -- and yes, even listen to faces and paintings.” —TEDTalks.

#Cyborg Neil Harbisson's work, The Human Colour Wheel, based on the hue and light detected on human skins.
