The man who can hear colours

IDEA: An eyeborg for the colourblind.

WHAT: The life of Neil Harbisson is like something out of a sci-fi novel. Neil was born with achromatopsia, a rare condition that leaves 1 in 30,000 people completely colourblind. But Neil isn’t colourblind, far from it. After convincing his doctors to implant an antenna onto him, Neil now possesses a new sense – the ability to hear colours.

WHY: Neil takes you through an entirely new world.
