Neil Harbisson: The Founder of the Cyborg Foundation

This is a video of a Ted talk of a completely colorblind man who hear colors. There is a moment when he says: “When I started to dream in color is when I felt that the software and my brain had united…that’s when I started to feel like a cyborg”

Enjoy! This guy is delightful! What is especially amazing is that he can hear colors that the human eye can not perceive so by becoming a cyborg he has extended his ‘normal’ human capacities. Could this be considered one of Harvey’s “slumbering powers”?
