SYNTHETIC SYNESTHESIA

So you are probably wondering why this guy has a mic so close to his face but here this. His name is Neil Harbisson and he is a colour blind artist who had an antenna surgically-implanted in his head which allows him to hear colour. The world is different place for Neil like other  synesthetes when he explain how he sees people and cities it sounds pretty amazing. 

" I use to think humans where back and white and since I hear colour I've detected that's completely wrong. There's no black skin, people that they are black they are actually very very dark orange and people that say they are white are very very light orange as well. So we are all exactly the same hue"   

I honestly couldn't imaging having an implant like this but it's really interesting listing to his perspective. If your as intrigued about him as I am you can also see his Ted talk here & subscribe to his youtube channel here
